Winners will be announced at end of judging and score compilation. Trophies/Plagues and checks for the winners are presented at the contest. After the Winner(s) are chosen, the remaining pies will be auctioned off. This is a great time to be had by all!!

Contest Winners will receive:

  • 1st place winner receives $75.00 monetary check and a plaque
