Any NY State student enrolled in a public, parochial, or private school, regardless of grade, who is less than 21 years of age before the deadline date, may submit an entry. Only INDIVIDUAL students may submit entries (no “partner” or “team” entries). In order to give every school district an equal chance, only 12 posters will be accepted from any district. It is suggested that school districts have a preliminary contest to decide which 12 posters are sent. If the district sends more than 12 entries, it will be disqualified.
The posters in each classification will be displayed at the 68th AMTNYS Annual Meeting at The Saratoga Hilton in Saratoga, NY from November 2-3, 2018. The participants of the 2018 AMTNYS Poster Contest work will be displayed at the Legislative Building in Albany at the concourse level of the Empire State Plaza in April 2019. If school districts would like the posters returned please contact your Assembly person to collect the posters by 4 PM on the last display date, and then have them return the posters to your school. If you or your Assembly person are unable to collect your schools posters on that day, please contact Stephanie Graseck for a later date to collect the posters.
Winners in each grade classification will be decided at the conference by the poster contest committee. If you wish to participate on the poster contest committee, please contact Stephanie Graseck. There will be a first prize of $75 and a second prize of $50 for each grade classification. The prizes will be forwarded to the winners at their school.
Anyone interested in having the posters returned should make arrangements with the Poster Contest Contact person, Stephanie Graseck, prior to the annual conference. Due to postage costs, we will not be able to return the posters by mail.
Completed poster designs must be postmarked by midnight SEPTEMBER 30, 2018, and received by October 7th.
