    > This is a program I knew about for years; I ordered the guides from the

    > decided to do a school-wide art exhibit to showcase the art program, and
    > from that show I selected 14 pieces which I sent to the regional exhibit.
    > Two of my students were selected to be in the show and we arranged a trip
    to
    > Washington, DC (the exhibit was at the University of Maryland). It was a
    > great experience for the students and their parents as well as for me.
    This
    > past year another of my students was accepted into the 40 chosen for the
