Screen Saver Challenge!

November 15, 2012

MLTI screen saver student opportunity

“Array of Colors” Emma Soucek, Mount Desert Island High School, Grade 10

Over the last four years, the MLTI device screen saver featured eighty outstanding student works of art (twenty each year) with over one thousand pieces of artwork submitted.

This opportunity is once again available for the 2013-2014 Screen Saver. Works of art submitted will be on display in a Studywiz Gallery where students and teachers may vote for and critique the artworks. The two works receiving the most votes (stars) will automatically be entered into the group of 20 finalists. An independent review committee will score the remaining pieces of artwork using a rubric (available online). The 18 artworks receiving top scores from the committee will be submitted to the finalists group as well.

Most schools have active Studywiz accounts for staff and students. Please check with your MLTI Tech Lead for more information. If you do not have a Studywiz account you will be issued an account to post the work. Your Tech Lead can create accounts – please keep in mind it takes 24 hours for a Studywiz account to become active so don’t wait!!

“Put Out the Fire” Margaret Robe, Waterville Senior High School, Grade 12

This opportunity is open to Maine students in grades K-12. MLTI asks that students submit only ONE piece of artwork to be considered for the 2013-2014 screensaver. Please take careful note of the sizing and labeling requirements. Submissions not meeting these requirements or students submitting multiple works will not have their artwork reviewed or voted on. The deadline to submit artwork for this challenge is December 17, 2012!

The students whose artwork is selected will receive free Student Conference registration (May 16, 2013) and will have their artwork on the 2013-2014 MLTI Screen Saver.

More information can be found online ( or in Studywiz ( in the 207 Screen Saver group.
