The ratings are superior, excellent and honorable mention. Superior ratings, which are awarded with a medal, may be given to no more than 10 percent of the entries in any contest. Judges may give as many ratings in excellent and honorable mention as appropriate.
  • Winning entries may be broadcast, displayed or published in JEA publications or on its affiliated websites. Winners’ names and schools will be published on the JEA website.
  • There will be no sweepstakes. Emphasis will be placed on the learning experience provided each individual contestant.
