This statement should be written on school 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 Satellite Program Nomination Form.

2. Students may also nominate themselves by completing the Satellite Program 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.
