SISPA Updates

Jan. 2, 2024
Good morning colleagues.

Final tweaks have been made to the website with help from our friends at SNO. (I'm pretty sure they will be glad when I retire!)

1. Onsite entries are due Jan. 15. If you have paid your dues, you. have also paid the entry fee for this contest.
2. You can submit TWO entries for each category except newspaper overall layout, website home page and theme development. That being said, you can upload three files for the purpose of judging your theme development.
3. ALL work must have been completed during this school year. If you submit something from last year, the entry will be disqualified.
4. Middle school and Core categories have a place to submit a URL or a file. Please do not submit both.

If you have trouble making your entries, please let me know. I would suggest taking a look at the website ASAP to see if you have questions.

Hope to see you in February!
Cathy Wall
