Winners from the Professional Category will receive $500 and a recognition plaque. Winners from the Student Category will receive $300 and a recognition plaque. Second and third place will receive $100 and $50 respectively. One best of show winner will be chosen by the judges and will receive a plaque and cash prize of $500.00.
