SET State Fair. Deadline Oct 9th. Get your entry form from me...and start shooting now. This is optional for all 1st year students, Comm I. But if you have already been taking pictures before this class...and think you have something to enter, I highly recommend both of these for their low entry few with nice cash prizes. You will need your pictures enlarged to 8x10 and they will need to be mounted. We will have an after school meeting on Thursday, Oct 5th to mount your pictures on display boards.
