As we are still in the planning stages for the competition. Which will most likely start the end of August and go until either Halloween or the opening of the 6th movie. I know, it sounds like a long time... but if one of the classes requires you to make a shawl..... you get my drift. I started this competition to help people get ready for the release of the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince movie. We will all be decked out quite nicely, I think.
There will be the four houses like in the books and each are headed by a Head of House. The Head of House is responsible for getting their team to win. They will have to make sure that they are represented by at least one member of their house in all the competitions.
The Headmistress (that would be me PrincessOnica), the Groundskeeper (Jane-H-Potter) and the Caretaker (hilltopkatie) will be passing out the points and generally keeping the peace.
Some examples of class assignments:
History of Magic- Harry Potter Trivia
Potions- combining 2+ colors and/or fibers and knit/crochet a project
Charms- make a knitting accessory or tool
You get the point. Points will be awarded for degree of difficulty, level of completion and my favorite.... wit.
I'm still working on a prize for the winning house other than the blog being decorated in the winning house's colors. If you are a pattern designer and have come up with a Harry Potter pattern that you wouldn't mind donating to the winning House, that would be AWESOME!!!
