Procedures for Participation

  1. Classes wishing to participate must register.

  2. Once project registration has been confirmed, classes should explore their surroundings in search of insects.

  3. Next, classes research the insects to gather information needed to write the insects' auto-bug-ographies. To engage more students and encourage cooperative learning, each class can create up to ten (10) auto-bug-ographies for submission.

  4. Each auto-bug-ography must include a "digital portrait" of the insect. These portraits can be digital photographs of the insect. They can be hand-drawn, then digitally photographed or scanned, or they can be created using a some kind of drawing/imaging software. Regardless of how the portrait is created, ALL must be submitted electronically in JPEG or GIF format (no larger than 100K).

  5. Each digital portrait must be accompanied by the auto-bug-ography (500 word limit). The auto-bug-ography can be in the body of the e-mail or attached as a word processing file.

  6. E-mail the auto-bug-ography and its digital portrait to the project coordinator.

  7. Once the auto-bug-ographies are received by the project coordinator, they will be posted to a special website. You will be notified of the web site via e-mail.
