Their Excellencies Madrone as Their Champion should send a Letter of Intent for

positively champion arts and sciences in the barony and around the
SCA.  Activities such as teaching and sharing one’s work
at artisan’s teas at events are ways to
champion.

oath at that time

Submit 3 items a persona would have owned or used. 
Documentation (of a sort) is needed…

                 
     —
It’s you, your entries, & your
knowledge; written documentation is not required; it is your job to
convince to judges that your entries are the ‘best’.
                  
          — Laurels and others who
have been doing this for a very long time will be judged more
stringently than someone who’s is new to this skill.

perfectly acceptable practice, provided you can convince the judges
that it’s appropriate to your
persona.
