Organizers note,

This art is not restricted to traditional art, though. Want to create a painting, piece of music, or story? Go ahead. Want to create a science project, mosaic, or meme? Go ahead. Want to create a philosophical video, a bedazzled jar of pickles, candy sculpture or video game? Go ahead. The sky's the limit, and it all begins with when you sign up for MakerJam.

The event is for both middle- and high-schoolers. Find the respective permission slips here and here.
