Nomination Process for Richmond Area (within 30 miles of VMFA)

1. Teachers, counselors, principals, or community center leaders must compose a written statement (maximum of 250 words), explaining why the student is a good candidate for this program. Up to two nominees per secondary school or community center may be selected. This statement should be written on the organization’s letterhead and mailed to Jessica Bauserman, Youth and Family Program Coordinator, 200 N. Boulevard, Richmond, Virginia, 23220 or emailed to Jessica Bauserman. The student is responsible for completing the online Richmond Nomination Form.

2. Students may also nominate themselves by completing the Richmond Nomination Form and the Self-Nomination section of the form which includes a written statement, describing their interest in art and fashion design, previous experience (none is required), and a description of a garment they would make from start (design) to finish (construction) if provided with only the following materials: cardboard, duct tape, hot glue, and white copy paper. The objective of the statement is to describe in as much detail how designers can transform ordinary materials.
