The annual Kingdom Arts and Sciences competition approaches!  The date is April 21, 2018, the location is the Shire of Lost Moor (St. Joseph, MO).  

Entries open on Thursday, March 1, 2018, and run until midnight, Saturday, March 31, 2018.  Any research paper submissions MUST be submitted by midnight, Saturday, March 31, in order to get them to judges in time to read and evaluate prior to the event itself, preferably in PDF format to ease forwarding and printing.

There are two components - the annual A&S Championship, and the Tri-levels. 

The Championship entrants each must put in three separate entries in different categories, all three at the advanced level.  The three entries may be all Arts, all Sciences, or any combination, so long as each is in a a separate judging category.  The entry form is on the A&S pages at this link:  

The Tri-levels entrants each put in a work in a single category, which may be entered at the Novice, Intermediate, or Advanced level at the entrant's discretion. The Tri-level entry form is also on the A&S pages, at this link: 

There are no minimum or maximum award levels to enter either category. 

Of course we also need judges...lots and lots of judges!  Judge teams are usually a spectrum of experience and expertise, you NEED NOT be a Laurel or GoA in a craft to volunteer to judge!  What you DO need is just your knowledge and interest, plus a reasonable amount of humility, tact, and desire to help your fellow artisans.  The judge sign-up form is here:
