Do the youngsters have to be members of IAP? My grandson would be interested but he isn't a member. Thanks.

I think 99% of the youngsters that entered were not a member of the forum. Both of my daughters have entered in previous years (not consistently), and were not a member.

No they do not, an IAP member can sponsor any child under 13 and more than one. It could be a friend or neighbor's child. Children under 13 are not eligible for membership.

Woodchipper, You are making posts here in the forum. That means you are a member. Welcome to the IAP.

Children must use a members profile to submit entries to the contest. I need a way to get back to the children and be able to send out any prizes they win.

OK, thanks for the info. Thought I might have missed something along the way. Will get with my grandson and work on a pen for the contest.
Edit: Won't be able to meet the 13th deadline due to our schedules. However, I have some pens to turn and will submit photos of a couple that he has done.
