It's hard to believe that this is our twenty-fifth year! It's been a full quarter of a century! We're sorry to say though that it'll probably be our final year. We've never taken donations or run ads to offset costs. Everyone involved in the contest is a volunteer, and many have had to use vacation time to make it all work. As the years have gone by, the number of folks helping out has dwindled. Some have retired, and some have passed away. Our judge count is likely going to be the lowest this year it's ever been, and without getting some additional new judges it won't make sense for us to run this contest again next year. Please if you're interested in helping out; if we get enough we may be able to keep things going.
