Whether it’s the thrill of competition, the prize money, winning that coveted blue ribbon, or perhaps a Best in Show rosette, every exhibitor has their own reason for entering. We thank all of our exhibitors, past and present, for sharing the results of their efforts and talents. We encourage everyone, especially those who have never exhibited, to give it a try this year!
