We regret the information sent earlier by EMIG was incomplete; no one
contacted the NAEA office. Following is a statement from the Imation
Corporation--Hope this is of clarification---NAEA

FROM:IMATION
RE:Computer Arts Scholarships
>
>
> The interest in the Imation Computer Arts Scholarships program has exceeded
> our expectations. The response has been so great to this first-time program
> that we ran short of materials, and are working round the clock to fulfill
> requests.
>
> When this program was launched, we estimated that there would be 2,500
> requests for implementation kits. About 3,000 requests were received in the
> ten days, and the total is at 8,000. Everyone is very pleased to see the
> response, but we encountered some delays in getting kits out to all of the
> schools. We don't need excuses. We understand your frustrations and
> apologize for any inconvenience. In response to the delays we are:
>
> EXTENDING THE DEADLINE from December 15 to January 9.
> BUT, if your entry is ready, please send it now so it can be prepared for
>the
> judges. By extending the deadline, we need to try not to overload the
>process
> and make it impossible to get materials prepared for judging. Please
>help us
> by sending your entry as soon as possible. But, it must be received by
>January
> 9, 1998.
>
> MATERIALS
> The fulfillment house is working around the clock this weekend to meet all
> requests. (Nearly 7,000 teachers already have received their packets.) Some
> of the kits will be sent without the photographic paper. Please use regular
> 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper. (Initial screening will be on computer. The top
>100
> selected will then be printed from one printer on the same paper to make sure
> all of them appear in equal quality for the judges making the selection
>of the
> top 25 and top five scholarship recipients.) The guidelines for entry
>are the
> same as the ones sent to you with the initial mailing and poster. The
> fulfillment kit also includes two Imation computer diskettes and
>certificates
> to award locally. We do not provide software or graphics programs for
>the art
> to be created with. Please have your students use programs and resources
> available at your schools to begin creating their artwork. You will still
> receive the diskettes and awards, but don't let that slow down your sending
> your entries.
>
> Again, we are excited that the response has been so great. It confirms
> Imation's belief that this is a good program and partnership. We all
>want it
> to work, and next year, be assured everyone will be prepared for greater
> interest. This clearly demonstrates that technology is finding its way into
> daily teaching, and into art education. Please call 1-800-773-9880,
>ext.14 to
> order kits.
>
> If any of you still have problems, send an e-mail to:

>
> Thanks for your understanding and your response to the program.
