The‌ ‌format‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌Live‌ ‌on‌ ‌Zoom‌ ‌and‌ ‌we‌ ‌are‌ ‌grateful‌ ‌to‌ ‌Mrs. Burns ‌as‌ ‌she‌ ‌has‌ ‌volunteered‌ ‌to‌ ‌put‌ ‌the‌ ‌show‌ ‌together‌ ‌for‌ ‌us.‌ ‌We‌ ‌are‌ ‌asking‌ ‌students‌ ‌to‌ ‌submit‌ ‌their‌ ‌entries ‌(recorded‌ ‌on‌ ‌your‌ ‌own‌ ‌devices)‌ ‌to‌ Mrs. Burns ‌directly‌ via email ‌or‌ ‌if‌ ‌it‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌photo‌ ‌of‌ ‌an‌ ‌art‌work ‌(please also include a photo of the artist‌ ‌and‌ ‌title‌ ‌of ‌the‌ ‌art‌ ‌piece)‌ ‌to‌ ‌Mrs. Stenhjem’s email.
