Calling all artists! You are invited to submit original artwork to a contest to choose the cover for this year’s JMS Yearbook. The yearbook theme is 2020 Vision. The contest winner’s work will appear on the front cover and wrap around on the back cover, so size accordingly. Entries are due by October 31 and will be judged based on creative interpretation of the theme, originality, and expression of JMS spirit and pride. Use any 2-dimensional media (drawing, painting, collage, etc.). Entries not selected for the cover may be included inside the book to showcase student creativity. Questions? Ask Ms. Kehrli, Mr. Kirkholm, or Ms. James.
