When the time comes to process Region-at-Large submissions, we bring in a small team of interns to help with the task. And this is no small task! Region-at-Large is where you submit your work if you don’t have a local affiliate program, and we saw some great art and writing being entered this year! Katherine Yee is an Awards alum and came back to join us for a second year of submission processing! Of the task, Katie says:

Although it might seem intimidating at first, the sheer volume of people who probably dream of doing the same things you do, you realize it’s less of a competitive environment and more of a community. It’s inspiring, really, that so many students express themselves so creatively and are brave enough to put their work into the world.”
