We invite students to submit either 2-dimensional (2-D) or 3-dimensional (3-D) entries, which are displayed at our fine craft show on the last weekend in October. Participating students compete for three cash awards:  Grand Prize ($500), Best 2-D Work ($100), Best 3-D Work ($100). Prizes are awarded Saturday afternoon during the show.
