Special Contest!
Greetings students of the kingdom! Her Royal Majesty has issued a challenge for all attending classes to prepare a banner to decorate our joust field. Banners are a renaissance way of showing who you are and what you stand for – they are part of heraldry – the study of coats of arms. Every colour and symbol on a coat of arms means something – even in modern times, many companies have a logo or a colour scheme. Your challenge is to transform your school’s colour / logo / motto into a renaissance style banner to decorate the joust field. Kindly label the back corner with the name of your school, the teacher’s name, and grade level, and the year of creation.

Banners should be made of fabric (try a second hand sheet), and measure approximately 3 feet in height and 6 feet in length (the chainlink fence is about 4 feet high).  Weatherproofing it is recommended to stand up against rain and dust. The banners will stay on display throughout the festival!
