Congrats! You're in!

You made it past the first deadline!

The next few steps are crucial!

Well our first hurdle is over and you did great!!!

I congratulate each of you for a job well done...we have 2,038 entries – a 19% increase from last year! So here’s an “Atta Boy” to you for a job well done here in the first part of Region 10N VASE!

Today, some of your print menu will be open for you. It is on the left taskbar (Print Menu) after you login. Go there today and print your invoice, take it to your bookkeeper ASAP along with your money for the entries, have a check cut for the amount, and mail it along with the invoice to the address on the invoice. Checks are made out to TAEA. Double-check with your bookkeeping department and make sure they understand that the check is now made out to TAEA and mailed to TAEA Headquarters in Dallas. My suggestion: HIGHLIGHT the information on the invoice in yellow highlighter! This will signify a change to your bookkeeping department. Your payment is due by February 17.

You may edit all aspects of your entries until midnight on February 17. You cannot delete an entry or add one, but you can edit (even swap one student name for another). After February 17, the rest of your print menu will be available. I will be sending more about this later as the time approaches.

Don't forget to check out our Region 10N VASE Website for helpful information for you and your students! The website address is:

Make Sure You Are Reading the NEW VASE Rules for 2016.

The Blue Ribbon Committee seemed to have been busy this summer! I keep getting rules updates from our State VASE Director, Linda Fleetwood.

Here are some highlights for this year's rule changes so far:

Inappropriate/Offensive Works of Art: TAEA/VASE adheres to displays of artwork that are family friendly.

(A) The following subject matter are inappropriate for VASE and are prohibited:

  • Artworks that include profane references to a deity, obscene language, drug abuse or paraphernalia, images of suicide or criminal violence.

(B) Teachers must receive campus principal’s signature on the Regional Entry Certification Form verifying the artwork has been reviewed and the content is approved.
  • Artworks that include [ANY] nudity, implied or explicit sexuality, or any subject matter inappropriate for young adults, and any content that may offend the moral standards of the community.

Too many teachers pushed the boundaries on the nudity realm. There will be NO NUDITY OF ANY FORM/KIND accepted and judged at this year's VASE Event.


(E) All artwork must have resources and references attached to the back of the artwork (or in the case of 3D artwork, must be included with the other attached form) such as photographs, rough drafts, thumbnail sketches, and/or production/reflection notes.

  • These include but are not limited to student photographs, student sketches, student-directed photographs, production/reflection notes, and any additional secondary references.
  • The appropriate box or boxes on the Student Intent and Artwork Identification Form must be checked citing the source or sources for the artwork.
  • A detailed description of the source of the image (for example, who took the photo and where it was taken) must be written in the appropriate section on the Student Intent and Artwork Identification Form.
  • Digital 3D printed work must have attached source to justify originality.
