STLP students compete in three competitions—Fall Showcases at MSU in November, Winter Virtual Products where they submit their work online to be judged, and the State Competition Event in March at Rupp Arena. Some categories at state are live competitions, but others are by invitation only, meaning that students have to be invited from their judged work in the fall and winter.
1065 pieces from around the state were submitted to be judged in the Winter round of competition. 8-10 students were chosen as semi-finalists in each of the category. Be sure to wish the students named below luck as they are judged again in March at the state competition against the best of the best!!!
