Art Contest Extension - Technical Difficulties

26 Oct

We had some issues with our server over the past day which caused the website to be down near the deadline of the art contest (oh no!).

To make up for this, we've extended the art contest deadline to October 31 at 11:19 PM. Get your submissions in by then!

Volunteering Update

17 Oct

Hello Volunteer Applicants!

As I'm sure you have noticed that October 15th has come and gone and you still haven't received any emails. Unfortunately, unforeseen delays have caused us to push back the planned dates. We do not have an exact date but we are hoping to have the emails sent early next week and we will post another announcement once they've been sent so you'll know to check your inbox.

We appreciate your patience with us and we will continue to work hard to get things rolling.
