We are very excited to get started on the Inspirations Arts Program this year.  This year’s theme is “What A Wonderful World.”  We really want the students to focus on all of the good that is around us.

We have implemented a new system for schools to sign up to participate in Inspirations this year.  Please use the following link to sign your school up.  Once you have signed up online I will send your school contact all of the paperwork for running the program at your school.  This will help us be much more efficient.
If you haven’t ever participated in Inspirations I would encourage you to try it out.  I would be happy to answer any questions.  Please email me so we can chat.
Thanks,
Reba Vest
State Inspirations Committee

Welcome to the 2013 – 2014 Program

Welcome
to the 2013-2014 Inspirations Art Program. We are very excited by the
theme for this year (My Best Day Ever) and know the students will create work
that will astound us all. Here are a few notes to bear in mind as you
conduct this program at your school.
 The school level competition needs to be
completed by 31 January 2014.  This can be done anytime between now and
then.  The first and second place winners
in each category and at each age level need to be sent to the school hosting
your regional levels.  The regional awards presentations will be held
on 28 February 2014.  The first and second place winners in
each category and at each age level need to be sent to the school hosting the
state levels.  The state awards presentation will be held on 28
March 2014
.
In order to make judging as impartial as possible please attach
all entry forms to the bottom/back of the project.  Names should not be
visible until after the judging process is complete.  If the artist wrote
their name on the front of the work please cover the name using a non-permanent
method.
There is a $100.00 participation fee per school.  This fee
is used to purchase medals and trophies at the regional and state levels. 
The fee is due by 25 October 2013.  Please send your fee to
C.S. Lewis Academy, 364 N SR 198, Santaquin, UT 84655. Be sure to note
with the payment that this is for the Inspirations Art Program.  Let us know if you need a payment extension.
All the rules can be found on our blog:  http://charterinspirations.blogspot.com/  Please familiarize yourselves with the rules
so you can pass on correct information to your students.  If you have any
questions, please first consult the Frequently Asked Questions section of the
blog.  If you still have questions you can either contact your school’s
Inspirations representative or leave a comment by clicking on the word
“comment” under the post and leave your question there.  Please
include contact information and we will get back to you as soon as
possible. 
We now have a facebook page. 
Updates and reminders will be posted as needed.  Please “like” and share the page with your
families.  Questions posted there will
usually be answered the same day.  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Inspirations/227458810638158
We are looking for schools who would like to host either the
regional levels or the state level of the competition.  Please let us know
if you are interested in being a hosting school.  Once the fee deadline is passed, we will
create regions based on what schools are participating.
Inspirations is a great program.  With a little time and
effort you will see your students shine and we promise you will learn from them
and be amazed!
Thanks for all you do,
Reba Vest, Chantelle Ray & Liz Hine

Inspirations Art Program Director & Board

Welcome to the 2012 – 2013 Program

Welcome to the 2012-2013 Inspirations Art Program. We are very excited by this years theme and know the students will create work that will astound us all. Here are a few notes to bear in mind as you conduct this program at your school.

The school level competition needs to be completed by 25 January 2013.The first and second place winners in each category and at each age level need to be sent to the school hosting your regional levels. The regional awards presentations will be held on 22 February 2013. The first and second place winners in each category and at each age level need to be sent to the school hosting the state levels. The state awards presentation will be held on 22 March 2013.
In order to make judging as impartial as possible please attach all entry forms to the bottom/back of the project. Names should not be visible until after the judging process is complete.  If the artist wrote their name on the front of the work please cover the name using a non-permanent method.
There is a $100.00 participation fee per school. This fee is used to purchase medals and trophies at the regional and state levels. The fee is due by 30 November 2012. Please send your fee to C.S. Lewis Academy, 364 N SR 198, Santaquin, UT 84655. Be sure to note with the payment that this is for the Inspirations Art Program. Let us know if you need a payment extension.
Please familiarize yourselves with the rules so you can pass on correct information to your students.  If you have any questions, please first consult the Frequently Asked Questions section of the blog.  If you still have questions you can either contact your school’s Inspirations representative or leave a comment by clicking on the word “comment” under the post and leave your question there.  Please include contact information and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 
We are looking for schools who would like to host either the regional levels or the state level of the competition. Please let us know if you are interested in being a hosting school.
Inspirations is a great program. With a little time and effort you will see your students shine and we promise you will learn from them and be amazed.
Thanks for all you do,
Reba Vest, Chantelle Ray & Liz Hine
Inspirations Art Program Director & Board

General Rules

Inspirations
Art Program
General
Rules
Every child can submit one entry
for each of the nine categories at the school level.  So every child could have nine different
entries.  Each entry must be accompanied
by an Inspirations Entry Form.  
The first and second place winners
in each category and age group will be sent on to the regional competition.
All participants are required to fill out, in
its entirety, and sign the Inspirations’ Entry Form.  Students who have not completely filled out
the form will not be eligible for the program. 
The school Inspirations committee should review the entry forms and
allow students the opportunity to complete any entry forms prior to school
level judging.  In situations where a
student cannot fill out the entry form or write legibly, a parent can fill out
the form and sign her/his child’s name
Each entry must be the original
work of one student only.  They may not
have assistance from teachers, parents, or friends unless there is a special
case (such as for someone with a visual or physical disability).  Because the program is designed to encourage
and recognize each student’s individual creativity, help from an adult or
collaboration with other students is not allowed.
All of the entries must be original
works.  Use of copyrighted material is
prohibited.  Do not borrow from
copyrighted material.  Plagiarism is
defined as taking and using another person’s ideas or writings or inventions as
one’s own.  Plagiarized entries will be
disqualified and returned to the student.
Entries must be related to the
yearly theme.  There is no wrong way to
interpret the theme.
Entries must comply
with the General Inspirations Rules as well as the corresponding category
rules.  Please refer to the individual
category rules before submitting an entry to ensure compliance.  All rules may be found on our blog:

have any questions, feel free to contact the Inspirations advisor at your
school.
ALL ENTRIES WILL BE JUDGED

conditioners, fans, telephones, etc.  Do
not place the recording device on top of an instrument or speakers.

If needed, improve recording quality by changing the record volume or
microphone location.

2009 – 2010 The Power Of One

Welcome to the 2009-2010 Inspirations Art Program. We are very excited by this years theme and know the students will create work that will astound us all. Here are a few notes to bear in mind as you conduct this program at your school.

The school level competition needs to be completed by Friday, 22 January 2010. The first and second place winners in each category and at each age level need to be sent to the school hosting your regional levels. The regional awards presentations will be held on Friday, 19 February 2010. The first and second place winners in each category and at each age level need to be sent to the school hosting the state levels. The state awards presentation will be held on Friday, 26 March.

In order to make judging as impartial as possible please attach all entry forms to the bottom/back of the project. Names should not be visible until after the judging process is complete.

There is a $100.00 participation fee per school. This fee is used to purchase medals and trophies at the regional and state levels. The fee is due by 1 October. Please send your fee to CS Lewis Academy, 364 N SR 198, Santaquin, UT 84655. Be sure to note with the payment that this is for the Inspirations Art Program. Let me know if you need a payment extension.

Please familiarize yourselves with the rules so you can pass on correct information to your students. If you have any questions, please first consult the Frequently Asked Questions section of the blog. If you still have questions you can either contact your school’s Inspiration representative or leave a comment by clicking on the word “comment” under the post and leave it there. Please include contact information and we will get back with you as soon as possible.

We are looking for school who would like to host either the regional levels or the state level of the competition. Please let me know if you are interesting in being a hosting school.

Once again, Inspirations is a great program. With a little time and effort you will see your students shine.

Thanks for all you do,
Reba Vest
Inspirations Art Program Director

Frequently Asked Questions

Who participates in Inspirations? Inspirations is a program for Charter Schools. Currently, it only takes place in Utah, but we hope to eventually expand and be a nationwide program.

What is the entry fee? When is it due and who pays it? The entry fee for 2009-2010 is $100. It is due on Oct 1st, 2009. Each Charter school who is participating in the program pays the entry fee. No students or parents need to worry about the entry fee.

What are the categories? Statewide, we have 8 categories: Literary Composition, Musical Composition, Visual Art, 3D Art, Photography, Theatre, Choreography / Dance, and Film / Video. However, your school may choose to participate in all 8 categories or just a select few. Please check with your school’s Inspirations representative to find out which categories your school is participating in.

How many entries can a student submit? Each student may submit one entry for each category their school offers.

What are the age divisions? We have 4 age divisions:
– Kindergarten – 2nd grade
– 3rd grade – 5th grade
– 6th grade – 8th grade
– 9th grade – 12th grade

Will everyone win an award? This will depend on your individual school. Some schools will choose to give everyone a participation award or certificate. However, only 2 entries per category and age group will advance to compete at the Regional level. At the Regional level, again 2 entries per category and age group will win medals and advance to compete at the State level. At the State level, trophies will be given to 2 entries per category and age level. While this is technically a “competition,” the point of the program is to encourage our students to be creative and express their individuality. We hope that the awards assemblies will reflect that purpose.

How do you find your judges? Judges for the program come from the community. Each school will be responsible for finding the judges for their school level competition. The judges should be impartial and not connected to the school. The judging will be blind-judging. The schools hosting the Regional and State level assemblies will be in charge of finding judges for those levels of competition. They should be different judges than the ones used at the school level. Your judges should have knowledge, expertise or experience in the category they will be judging. They can be found anywhere in the community: Librarians, Authors, teachers at another school, local artists, newspaper or TV media, professional photographers, interior decorators, dance instructors or professional dancers etc…

Are there any entry examples from previous years we can view? Coming soon.

Will you have a CD player or a TV so that I can show my child’s work? That will be up to the school’s running the awards assemblies. We do encourage them to have those things available so that all the students entries may be viewed and enjoyed by all.

What if we miss the deadline? Will you extend it? The Region and State deadlines will not be changed. If you’ve missed the entry fee deadline and wish to participate the current year, please contact us immediately. Depending on the time frame, we may be able to include you. If not, we will be sure to get you information for next years program.
