    Helpful Hints when creating your piece:

    • Keep the text brief; your message and/or mission should be clear and understandable without oral explanation.
    • All letters on your poster should be big enough to make it readable at 5 feet.
    • Avoid lesser-known abbreviations and acronyms.
    • Upper and lowercase letters together are easier to read than all uppercase letters.
    • Background and print colors should be in contrasting colors.
    • Color is an efficient and effective way to draw attention.
    • A photograph is often worth a thousand words.
