Poster Competition

Student created posters are a great way to depict projects taking place in your EAST classroom, maps that have been created, student growth, collaboration, teamwork, and the many other facets that EAST has to offer.

Poster Competition Guidelines

All posters must be focused around your EAST program or a specific project.

Poster Size/Orientation - Posters must be 30" x 40" and can be submitted in portrait or landscape orientation. Be sure to double check the size of your poster before you submit. Submissions that do not meet the exact size requirement will not be included in the judging.

File Format - All submissions must be in JPEG file format (.jpg). Other file types will not be accepted.

Tip: Share your final design with your peers, facilitator, family, and others. They will provide feedback on your final design. Be sure that they see the message behind your design. Spelling and grammatical errors will count against you and may disqualify your design from the competition.
