Entering an Arts & Science contest
can be intimidating, if your first time entry will be judged
against experts with a great deal of experience. I would like to
encourage participation from all levels of experience, so will
break the contest into three levels:
There will be three "levels"
Beginner: You have never entered an A&S contest before.
Experienced: You have entered at least one contest.
Expert / Open: If you have won a Branch Championship, or you are a
Laurel, you must enter at this level. You may also enter the Expert
category if you want the challenge of competing against Champions

express your intent to enter by Feb 1st so that judges can be
sought. If you are not wanting to enter, but would like to judge,
please contact me!

It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
