WTDO ART Contest

We have many creative students out there, and we need your drawings. Please consider submitting a design for this year's WTDO T-shirt Art Contest. You will find the guidelines below. Last year's winner was Alex Guerrero from Abilene. Cash prizes are awarded for first place and runner up!

VIPS forms for Community Volunteers - How will I know if I am required to complete one?

How will you know? Answer these questions:

1. Am I an employee of a school district?

2. Am I an employee of an Education Service Center?

3. Am I a student in grade 12 or below?

4. Am I the parent of a competitor (a Deaf/HH student who is competing)?

If you answered NO to all of these questions, you must fill out a VIPS form in addition to the volunteer form. Please visit the SAISD website and complete your form online.

Please call or email if you have any doubt about whether you need to fill out the form.
