Arts & Sciences Competition
General Arts & Sciences Competition Theme:
Anything that has to do with any type of farming or warfare. For example, farms have plants and animals. If what you have has an animal or plant on it or mentions an animal or plant or is made from an animal or plant, you should be able to link it to the theme. In warfare, in addition to armor, swords, and blood and gore, there are support systems – people who keep the army going. If you can link your entry to warfare itself or any of the knowledge, skills, or abilities that keep a good army marching, you’ve got a viable entry. In short, if you can work the word "farm" or ‘farming’ or ‘war’ or ‘fighting’ into your description or documentation, you're good to go. Documentation on a 3x5 card, at a minimum. Voting by populace choice.
