You will be notified within four to six weeks if your project is selected. If you send samples in the mail and need them returned to you, please be sure to include a pre-addressed envelope with sufficient postage. Unsolicited material will not be returned if postage is not included, as we receive many projects and articles daily and cannot be responsible for sending them back without pre-addressed pre-stamped envelopes.

Again, thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you!
