Greetings potential Oregon Scholastic Art Awards juror!
This is an invitation to be a juror for the 2017 Oregon Scholastic Art Awards. Either you have juried for us before, or your name was recommended to us. We believe that based on the recommendations you will make an excellent juror for the 2017 Oregon Scholastic Art Awards.
Each juror will be fed scrumptious carbohydrates, and caffeinated beverages in the morning. A delicious lunch at high noon, as well as more snacks than you can imagine. Jurors will be paid $25.00 for their time and efforts, which they can choose to donate back to the Oregon Scholastic Art Awards if they would like.
As a juror you also receive the warm and fuzzy feeling that you helped advance the hopes of student artists in our state! You WILL leave inspired and amazed at the work the students create.
