Size and Display:
Museum visitors will be able to vote for their favorite skeleton(s) at The Health Museum as well as through our social media channels (Instagram, Facebook and TikTok) from October 6 - November 3, 2023.
By entering your skeleton in Siege of the Skeleton's you agree to have your skeleton on public display at The Health Museum for the full exhibition time. Museum guests, media and The Health Museum will be taking videos or photographs of your work for promotional purposes, including print and television, website, social media campaigns and promotional materials for the museum.
Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners!
For group entries, prizes will be awarded as a whole, not to each individual.

All props and decorations must also be picked up - whatever was dropped off must be picked up. The Health Museum is not responsible for discarding entries, props or decorations associated with this contest.
We encourage you to display your skeletons at your school, place of work, place of meeting or in your homes! Please send us photos of your skeleton's permanent home!)
