Please carefully review changes noted below:
Changes have been made this year that limit the number of contest entries a local club may send to the NJ Youth Chair. The submissions are now limited to three entries per contest, per grade level, per local club.
The local club will be responsible for the selection of those contest entries that are sent to GCNJ Youth Chair.
It is recommended that the selection of the entries be made by a Selection Committee composed of a minimum of three adult local club members who are not related to Youth contestants, and who would be impartial in their selections and who have the appropriate background for and interest in the youth projects. If the local club so chooses, a community representative may be invited to join the Selection Committee. It would be at the discretion of the local club to determine whether to have one Selection Committee for all contests or a separate Selection Committee for each respective contest.
Please mail entries for all other 3 Youth Contests (Posters, Poetry, Sculpture Contests) to Bob Markey “flat” rather than rolled, using a sturdy mailing envelope.
Reminder that a max of 3 entries per grade level, for each of the Youth Contests, may be entered and sent to the GCNJ Youth Co. Chair; Bob Markey.
Read the contest rules for eligible grade levels.
All entries are to be mailed to:
PO Box 1504,
Rahway, NJ 07065
