HOW TO ENTER

Between 10:30am and 2pm you will nominate yourself at the Fashions on the Field area (look for the signs upon entry) 

This year, all nominees will be invited to walk the stage and show off their ensemble. Judges will select ten finalists for each category and each Top 10 will be presented to the crowd on stage where a winner and runner up will be chosen and announced.
