Every effort will be made to obtain qualified, impartial judges in every area. Judging will be based upon recognized standards of quality, skill, and workmanship. Where there is competition, all prizes may be awarded as long as there are worthy entries. Where articles are not worthy of first prize, judges may, at their discretion, award a prize or prizes of such a grade as the article deserves. Any article not up to standard in the class in which it is entered may be ruled out by the judge(s). Articles without competition will be judged on their own merit and will be placed first, second, third, etc., or no award, as the judges see fit. Judging will not be delayed for late entries. Any exhibit not presented promptly at the scheduled time is barred from competition in the class. Protests that the judges overlooked exhibits will not be considered. No one will be allowed to act as judge in a class in which he/she exhibits or in which he/she may hold an interest. Should any article be entered in the wrong class and the error discovered before the judging, the superintendent may make proper correction in the entry. The decisions of the judges shall be final in all classes
