Rule 18: Process Paper

A process paper is required for projects in every category. The process paper must be 500 words or fewer, and must not include quotes, images, or captions.

1. How did you choose your topic and how does it relate to the annual theme?

2. How did you conduct your research?

3. How did you create your project?
