In some categories, entrants are allowed and/or required to upload additional digital examples of an entry. This is intended to provide more appropriate content for the judges, should a virtual judging solution be necessary. For most categories, there has been no change from prior competition years.

Each year, over 35,000 entries are submitted annually from over 160 clubs throughout the United States. One must enter the local competition to be considered for a District or National award. All local GOLD winners are automatically submitted to the District competition at no cost to the entry holder.
