Pre-entries are due by August 21, and the entry fee is $35 per contestant—contestants must have a current APHA or AjPHA membership. All entries received after August 21 will incur a $5 late fee per contestant. The contest begins at 8 a.m., and the awards ceremony will take place at the conclusion of the competition.
