Who can enter this contest?
Any chapter in good standing with its state JCL and the NJCL is eligible to enter.
What is this contest?
It is a middle ground between the scrapbook contest and Publicity Binder contests. Scrapbooks require artistic talent. The Publicity Binder is publicity specific. But what if you don’t want to create an aesthetically pleasing scrapbook, and what if the activity is more social than publicity (like a pizza party after school!!) This contest is for you!
How do we create the project?
Use the submission form to detail hte type of activity, dates, etc. Then attach it in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do I have to attend a state convention or NJCL convention to enter?
No. Just be a “chapter in good standing” that is doing fun stuff that you want to showcase.
What is the time-frame for this contest?
Include pictures and descriptions for events from June 16, 2018 to June 15, 2019. The last day to enter this contest is June 15, 2019.
Are there any caveats?
Submissions received after the due date will lose 10% of their points for every day late after the deadline. Points will be subtracted or items disqualified if required verification or information is missing from the entry. Any falsification of entries by a school will result in that school being ineligible for the entire contest for that school year.
Other than that….no!
Are there submission requirements?
Yes, a rubric is included below. Also, please do not include copyrighted material without expressed written permission to use it in the presentation for this contest.
All entries must be organized by into four categories: service, convention and officers, outreach and spirit, and other. If programs or activities overlap, enter it into just one category.
Are there prizes?
Of course! Awards will be given to the top scoring schools and for the most creative program or activity. Certificates will be awarded to the runner-up schools as well as the states that have the greatest percentage of chapters entering the contest and the largest number of chapters entering. All winning chapters will be announced at the 2017 NJCL, even if members/teachers from that school cannot attend.
How will I know if you received the presentation?
Each emailed presentation will be confirmed with an email receipt.
