time to read up on the subject themselves.***
What if you don’t want to compete, but you do really cool
things and want people to know more about this?  We’d love to
see the amazing things you do!  Bring out your current
projects, make a display and show off your thrilling projects.
 They don’t have to be finished we’d like to see the creative
process as well!  This can be used as training for entry into
an A&S competition, or just because what you are currently
working on is so cool! Contact the event steward 2 weeks in advance
so that we can arrange table space.
