IFFF Art Contest:

For many years, we have held an Insect Art Contest in conjunction with the Insect Fear Film Festival. The art contest is organized and presented by graduate students and judged by volunteers from campus and the community, but participation by teachers and students truly makes the art contest a success. In the past, we have solicited entries from art teachers in area schools, but we think that participation in the Insect Art Contest can extend beyond art classes. Any student in the community is welcome to enter.

Thank you for all the wonderful submissions!
