Digital Design Contest Deadline Nears

A year of fame, a digital portfolio piece and contacts at a digital design firm await the winner of this year's Smoke and Scales banner contest. The winning design will be featured every week in the coming year's online school newsletter. Entries for the 2013-14 academic year banner are due by 4:00pm, Friday May 24. 

All students submitting entries will receive community service hours, and entries will be judged by a digital design expert. Each entry will receive detailed evaluation comments from our judge. 

Designs should be full color, 825 x 125 pixels, and should include the text "Smoke and Scales." The winner will be announced in the June 11 issue of Smoke and Scales. Last year's winner was Arthur Wu (Chesterfield '12), now a freshman at the University of Virginia.

Please submit designs and/or questions to
