** PRESUBMITTED EVENTS FOR NLC
As indicated at the SLC Awards Session, students who qualified for events that require presubmitted materials should wait for me to provide some details about how to presubmit their events. There were quite a few students who submitted things incorrectly for state conference, but we accepted the items. I want to make sure everything is done correctly for national competition in order to avoid disqualification. I will send information after the Secondary SLC, the week of March 19, 2018.
