Does the DHS project actually have to be inside the 3x3 box?

<p>From the DHS application:

[quote]
Rather than sending a three-dimensional project, we suggest that you send CD-ROMs, DVDs, electronic files, photocopies, slides, photographs or videotapes of your work, augmented by a written description.

A CD is larger than that box. Does that mean I could just send any two-dimensional material that doesn't fit in the box?</p>

<p>Yes, you just should (I would think, anyway) relate the box to what you have done, somehow. My D, for example, wrote a "newspaper article" for her DHS project, and the box was a block on the periodic chart of the elements that was essentially an illustration attached to the article.</p>

<p>I am also confused by this - can you put a web address in the box that links to a web page of your writing pro-folio?</p>

<p>It is completely up to you.</p>

<p>I know it seems daunting when you just see a small box on a piece of paper (it certainly was for me), it shouldn’t be. There is no right or wrong here. It’s a matter of taking that box, using some creativity and your passion for something and putting it all together. When I went to the Dean’s Scholarship reception and spoke with other recipients, I found that there really wasn't one thing, or type of thing, they were looking for. If you search through past years, you’ll see that all the projects were very diverse. Good luck!</p>
