I am thinking of making and submitting something to the contest. But I really feel like I don't know who Kolleen Park is enough to produce something sincerely. So I am doing research, and started with a youtube search.
The above video gives me a good feeling, even though I don't know the words to the song. Maybe you aren't into creating art but it would be fun to come to the event, right? Go back to the contest page and check the dates. There is going to be activities such as portrait drawing and I bet the gallery opening will be really great.
