statement is included with the proposal submission. Advisor-Mentors may assist in completing required
paperwork for younger students.

teaching artists, community leaders or parents. Individual student teams or their school sponsors are
responsible for financing the projects, rehearsal needs, supplies and materials, costumes, and
transportation to and from the festival and related events.

Please share this information with teachers, school site administrators, community organizations and
