* It was educational and fun for all attendees including parents, guardians, family, friends and guests.
* All competitors received framed Participation Certificates, some donated gifts and varying cash prizes based on final placement.
* First, Second and Third Place ribbons were awarded to the contestants finishing in those spots.
Congratulations to The St. Albert Club and especially to President Marvin for this initial success.
