Welcome to the First Annual NAHS THROWDOWN 2017! We look forward to your participation and products as we continue to evolve this event. Please read the document below and organize your team participation with the event descriptions in mind as there are requirements for some pre-planning, collaboration and event time overlaps. Teams may choose to participate in some or all of the challenges. All challenges will be judged and scored adding up to final point totals for each team. Some challenges are individual, some require teams of two or more active artists to be considered for judging, and some are more open school-based collaborations.

Feedback/Debriefing
Please keep in mind that people are volunteers. During and after the event we will be actively pursuing feedback regarding the event and how it should evolve to create a durable and impactful series of competitions. It is the intention of these competitions to keep the arts actively in the public eye while affording the students an elevated experience, solidifying and activating art programs in the schools, and creating a greater sense of consistency and collegiality between art programs across the region.
We will do our best to have a twitter board running during all events both days. Encourage your students to participate in it.

Proposal sketches and reference images are allowed to support the production. A written statement will accompany the image to inform the audience of the intentions of the artists. This statement can be written ahead of the actual image creation time window. The writing can only serve to clarify the nature of the work. The writing itself is not part of the judging criteria. Easels and flat surface areas will be provided to work on the piece in the preferred method. Teams will bring any and all materials, tools, and media preferred to create an original work.
