In the annual Citywide Graphic Arts Competition, graphics students from high schools all over New York City come together in Brooklyn to test their skills, experience a college lab environment, network with other graphic kids and show off what they've learned.

The Competition is an important step in the education of the next generation of industry professionals, and we need your help to make it a success:

We need your time and your talents as
>> a volunteer judge,
>> an on-site coordinator or
>> a Teachers' Workshop panelist.

We need
>> supplies for the equipment,
>> premiums for the winners and
>> handouts for the take-home bags given to students and teachers.

Plus we need your cash to pay for the prizes, coffee service, donuts and lunch.

The Competition is an all-volunteer effort of the Graphic Arts Educational Advisory Commission, the faculty and staff of CityTech, industry friends, and committed teachers and administrators from the Department of Education's Career and Technical Education team. Please help us with a donation earmarked for the Competition Fund through the Graphic Communications Scholarship Award and Career Advancement Foundation by clicking on the box at left.

More importantly, contact us to discuss ways that you or your company can help. Email Commission Chair Annette Wolf Bensen.
