FOLLOWING STEPS IF THE PIECE MOVES TO THE NEXT ROUND OF JUDGING.

  1. - Lake Washington PTSA Council will put all entries received through another round of judging in December and forward the top entries to Washington State PTA in January. (If your piece moves forward for the State judging you will have to provide your art and drop off at school. Remember that they must follow the rules to qualify.)

 

 

  1. - Washington State PTA has all the entries they receive judged and they usually announce their results in mid-late February and the strongest pieces are advanced to National PTA.

 

 

  1. - We usually hear results from the National PTA judging in May.
