We can't very well be a blog about creativity and community without occasionally testing your creativity in a friendly little competition. Each August we participate in a three-day athletic event, flexing and stretching each of our creative muscles - except in the fourth year. In the fourth year, we join other elite athletes and compete in an Olympic Decathlon.
A quick recap of some things to know:
Events are posted at 4:00 a.m. each morning. You have until 10:00 p.m. CST to complete your task and send your submission via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. To be considered a triathlete you must compete in all three events, though you may dabble in only one or two if you are participating only recreationally. Submissions will be evaluated by a small panel of judges and assigned a score ranging from one to ten points. The three people accumulating the most points will be crowned 2009 Highlowaha Triathlon Champions and will win purses of $100.00, $50.00, or $25.00.
Today we flex our creative hand.
Using one medium bag of Milk Chocolate M & Ms (12.60 oz), create a mosaic. That's it. Simple, creative, and yummy.
Once completed, take a digital photo of your mosaic and email it to email@example.com. Please put the word, "mosaic" your subject line.
But, before you're off and running... let me know you're out there by sharing what you'll do with your m&ms once your masterpiece is finished? Celebrate by eating them? Eat the green, but toss the rest? Mod Podge your mosaic and save it for the Highlowaha Hall of Fame?
On your marks, get set...
Signing off until tomorrow...
