Expect to receive this form in mid-October. Local chairs are to complete and return the form electronically and bring a paper copy with the student works on November 17 and 18 to verify submissions.

All local units, Council and District levels are NOT required to use this registration process. ALL forms accompanying student entries MUST be COMPLETELY filled out to be accepted at each level.
