Several months ago we received a poster and written materials concerning a
digital art scholarship competition which seemed to be a joint venture of
the National Art Education Association, the American Association of School
Administrators and the Imation Enterprises Corporation. We returned the
post card to request our entry packet and nothing happened. Months have
pasesd and the entry deadline is December 15. We have tried to call the
1-800 number several times and the number seems busy for a few seconds and
then it cuts off. We have gone to the Imation Web page and tried to email
them and we get a generic response listing another phone number. I posted
my problem to the EMIG list and discovered that at least six other art
theachers around the country have had the same problems that we have been
experiencing. So far, I have seen NO indication in the responses that would
suggest that entry packets have been mailed to any teachrs or schools.

I am sorry to bother you folks with this request, but I and other teachers
at our school played up the comptetion and scholarship to our kids when
the materials come in the mail and since that time the students have been
working hard to create their entries. From the responses that I have
received from other art teachers, I understand that I am not the only person
who finds myself in thiis awkward situation of having motivated the
students to develop their entries and now there seems to be no way to enter
the contest.

My questions to list members are:

Have any of you received entry packets?

Have any of you had the same problems as I and other teachers have experienced?

Any suggestions?
