Student Art Contest!

Calling all high school artists: enter our student art contest!

This is a free contest, open to all secondary school students. Cash prizes ($800 total) will be awarded for the best science fiction or fantasy-themed artwork. There are no entry or exhibition fees, and no "gotcha"s. We simply wish to recognize, celebrate and encourage outstanding student art. Students who wish can also choose to put their art up for sale.

We have live performances for you!

We've got a mixture of new and returning events for you this year. To see a preview, please check out our Live Performances information!

Attention all artists!

Attention all artists!

We have managed to tie up both of our artistic Guests of Honor with designs for the sales shirts this year. This leaves us without a "mad science' themed design for our volunteer shirts. Love mad science? Have some great ideas? How about a nice line drawing to reward our volunteers for their hard work?

Deadline November 1, 2010
Send designs to [email protected]

Fabulous prizes to be awarded for the design chosen!

Dr. Karen and Jonathan
