Carry it in to the convention!

Home / Uncategorized / Carry it in to the convention!

Since mail-in category entries are due in December, we want to give you a chance to enter more recent items you have created (or items you forgot to enter) for competition. See carry in categories here.

Eligibility requirements:

  • Publications must be ASPA members.
  • Adviser and one paying student must be present at the convention.
  • Entries must be turned in by 9 a.m. Friday.
  • Entries will be disqualified if they do not meet the established criteria.

Entry preparation:

All entries must be from the 2017-18 school year. Each entry (except broadcast) must be mounted on black, white or gray foam or poster board. Actual pages, quality copies or pdfs are acceptable. If entry is larger than 14” x 22” please reduce and print to fit on this size board. No mounting supplies will be provided at registration.

Each entry must be clearly marked on the back with the student’s name, school, publication and publication type.

Broadcast or photography entries may be submitted on an SD card or jump drive, in en envelope (not provided). If you would like your card or jump drive back, attach a self-addressed, stamped envelope and we will mail it to you. Or, come by the Anderson Room between 2-3:30 p.m. to claim it. Your name, school and adviser’s name must be on an envelope with the card of drive in it.


Three awards will be given for each carry-in contest: 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. No honorable mentions will be given unless the nudges cite extreme circumstances.
