Saving Endangered Species Youth Art Contest prospective volunteer juror information:
-Contest entries will be in four grade categories - K-2,3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. There are normally between 350-500 entries per/grade for ~1500 total entries.
-We will meet once, in person in Seattle, and review the entries as a group. Before this meeting, individuals will review work from their assigned grade category narrow their selections and share their recommended finalists (~10-20) with the whole group. This process will happen sometime in early March 2018.
- Our purpose is to narrow down the entries to 40 total. From there, this group of 40 artworks will be shared with the final judges (a separate group of people), who will select the contest winners
-We would like to hear from those with interest and hope to confirm preliminary judges- ideally 4-5 people- by early-mid January.
