Rules Students can share their thoughts, impressions, and memories of powwows in their own way. Some may want to write about a memorable event, such as the first time they danced, wore regalia, or held an eagle feather. Some may share a funny story. Others may choose to draw a picture of their memories, send in a song, or, perhaps, a photo of themselves or relatives, along with a description.

All entries will be posted on the internet, anonymously at first, and then the students will be identified following on-line judging. Decisions of the judges are final.
