Please be sure to read all rules and regulations for each department you enter.


Most competitions require pre-registration closing mid-September, so early registration is recommended. Registration deadlines vary by department.


If you have questions about which categories will accommodate your exhibits, please contact the Entry Department for guidance before you register.


Exhibitors who choose not to disclose their full Social Security Number or Federal Tax ID at the time of registration (paper entry forms or online), even if they have submitted an entry in the past, forfeit any and all premium monies they may be entitled to.
