The event, sponsored by the Alexandria Education Foundation (AEF) and the Jefferson High School (JHS) A Club, showcases the talent and creative projects of District 206 students.

There were first ($50), second ($25) and third ($15) place prizes in four categories.

In the grades 5-8 and 9-12 creative writing category, students could write an original piece under an open theme and open genre. Judging was based on the criteria of originality and creativity, clarity and writing conventions.

In the optical illusion art (op art) category in grades 5-8, students were required to create an original look of 3D on a 2D surface.

The visual art category in grades 9-12 was open to any medium of art. The emphasis was on the creative process and the employment of design elements.

Judging was done by community volunteers with art and/or writing experience.
