Students at Big Sky High School in Missoula, Montana has pulled off something as big as, well the Montana sky. With the help of their teacher, Lorilee Evans-Lynn, they have turned their school's literary arts magazine into an international magazine with photography, art and writing submissions coming from high school students all over the world. They even have a board of national writers and poets. Being an art and literary magazine advisor myself, and having to go digital this year since our budgets were drastically cut, and we couldn't get enough people to buy the printed ones, I can just imagine the amount of work that goes into fundraising. Aerie International is truly inspiring. I have several students preparing to submit poetry.
If you didn't get their flyer this year, check out their website and encourage your students to submit. The deadline is February 1st for 2009.
