New This Year:
We are looking forward to a different and exciting Convention this year and hope you will join us.  Our host leagues are putting forth great effort to ensure everything runs smoothly and your experience is encouraging and rewarding. We want you to have the best time possible. Our Convention this year breaks from the Friday/Saturday program of  past and will be held on a Saturday/Sunday this year. It is our hope that you will enjoy the events and dinner on Saturday and return on Sunday to take advantage of the continued events, including the judging of our Show and Exhibit. We will have vendor representation this year and hope some new elements introduced to the Program will please and entertain everyone. We're making some exciting preparations for the future of LSAG and hope you'll be there to share the excitement.
The LSAG is gratified to be hosted by Fluor Corporation, a community leader in the Sugar Land area.

Qualifiers for the Show:
Qualifiers for the Juried Show are awarded by judges throughout the art year at league level shows.  Winners of a 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, and 1st Honorable Mention in each division & category are eligible--- up to 4 qualifiers in a division & category but based on the judge's discretion.   All Best of awards are also eligible.
Please Note:  LSAG does not recognize regular Honorable Mentions as qualifiers as judges often award multiple regular honorable mentions in a given division and category.  Qualifiers are exclusively the top 4 awards and any "Best of" award given at the judge's discretion.   Regular honorable mentions are not nor have they ever been qualifying pieces for convention.  Leagues that enter regular HMs as qualifying pieces in the database will have disciplinary measures.  Repeatedly breaking this policy may result in the league not continuing to be an LSAG member league.
