What are the different categories of entries?
Students may enter in one of eight categories: individual or group performance, individual or group exhibit, individual or group documentary, individual or group interpretive web site, and individual paper. A performance is defined as a dramatic portrayal of the topic. An exhibit is similar to a museum exhibit (typically a three-panel tabletop display). A documentary can use slides, video, or any noninteractive computer program such as Quicktime, Shockwave, or Microsoft Access. A paper must be between 1,500 and 2,500 words in length (about six to ten typed pages). The interpretive web site may include up to 1,200 student-composed words and no more than 100 MB file space.
