The Super 17 Challenge is a non-premium event; exhibitors will receive premium points for the exhibits they enter, but there are no extra points for participating in the Challenge. Participants will receive a patch for entering all 17 divisions.
Exhibits must be designated for the Super 17 Challenge on the entry days before judging has occurred. Participants are required to tell the Superintendents which exhibits they are entering for the Challenge so they can be properly recorded. Please note that there are different entry days for different divisions.
The winner of the Super 17 Challenge will be determined by the most blue ribbons awarded in the designated 17 divisions. In the event of a tie, a count of blue ribbons received for the non-designated exhibits (limit of three blue ribbons per division) will be taken. The winner will receive a patch and rosette proclaiming his or her superiority over all the universe - and bragging rights!
