Yearbook Cover Contest

New format for 2014-15!

Calling all artists!

It is time for the annual Oak Grove Yearbook cover contest. All Oak Grove students are eligible If you would like to design the cover for the 2014 – 2015 Yearbook, please turn in your entries to Mr. Huber's mailbox in the Elementary office on or before Tuesday, April 21, 2015.

"Due Date 4/21/15? Why so much earlier this year?"

In the past, students have submitted final versions of their art work for consideration. This year, the winning student(s) will learn how to work with Photoshop or similar software to make their artwork camera-ready. Student artwork needs to be an OUTLINE rather than a finished product this year.

"Outline? What do you mean?

Think "Coloring Book!" Students should submit artwork that looks like it could be found in the pages of a coloring book. The winners will be contacted, and their work will be manipulated digitally to come up with the finished product. Here's a picture that shows what an example submission could look like.

Rules for Artwork

Students should follow these rules when submitting their work:

• Entries must be on 8.5" x 11" piece of paper - do not design a cover that would cover the front and back.
• Entries must be in pencil only - NO COLOR! (that comes later)
• The artist should sign their work on the BACK, not the front
• The artist should put their first and last name and grade on the back or on a small piece of paper attached to it so we know for sure who the artist is
• No tracing other people's artwork
• No shading
