Guest Judges are passionate and will handle your exhibit with the utmost care.
This is a not for profit contest: all monies received will be invested in prizes (not including the nuc which is a donation) and awarded accordingly.
Please include with your honey entry; your name , address, phone number, email address, and appropriate fee. You may also include a return postage fee of $10 with each entry to get your honey back or the honey will be donated to a local charity.
All judging is subjective based on the judges personal thoughts and whose decision will be final.
I will personally check moisture content and note my personal thoughts and recommendations with the judges score and return them to each participant.
