On-site entries are $10 per student. Students may only compete in one on-site category due to the structure of the competition. On-site instructions will be given at the Convention kickoff Friday morning. Please provide names so we may label each student's contest information packet appropriately. Students cannot compete if they are not registered.

We do not want to have to turn anyone away.

Please give us an idea of how many students you will have bringing items to the carry-in competition in each category below. This is so we can make sure we have enough judges for each category. If your estimates vary slightly, we understand. Each entry is $10. Please see guidelines on the ASPA website at
