Our “Best In Show” contest is a purely “for fun” contest where contestants will be allowed to strut their stuff and possibly win some great prizes. This is NOT a “Title” contest. We’re not looking for a titleholder or community representative. We’re looking for the most adorable, talented, or fun puppy at our event.
Each contestant will get 5 minutes on stage to do anything (legal) they want. No mandatory speeches, interviews, gear, or pop questions. Just do your thing and have fun. There will be a panel of judges who will each give you a score out of 25. Once every contestant has had their 5 minutes on stage, they will have 15 minutes to collect as many ballots from Weekend Package holders as they can. Barking, growling, humping, pawing, or whining…whatever you need to do to get those ballots. At the end of the 15 minutes, the number of ballots collected by each contestant will be counted towards their final score.
The puppy with the highest score will be declared the winner, and will receive some cool prizes.
