2nd place : at least 75 entries
3rd place : at least 50 entries
To qualify for the top teacher awards, you must have a minimum of 50 Pro/Am entries and meet all the deadlines : registration and payment in full.
These awards are based on total points accrued during the event. The point system is explained below.
ALL ENTRIES MUST BE PAID IN FULL BY DEADLINE DATE IN ORDER FOR ENTRIES TO COUNT.
If more than one person qualifies for first place then the highest total will be the winner and second place will receive second place prize money )i.e., $1,000 to first, $750 to second)/ Should two people tie for first place, they will split the sum of first and second places (i.e., each will receive $875)/ This also applies to all other places.
If first place does not qualify with 100 entries and has for example greater than 75, he does qualify for $750. Should second place also have greater than the 50 entries but fewer points than the other he will qualify for second place and receive $500 third place prize money.
To qualify for top teacher prize money, all entries must be received no later than the final deadline and must be paid in full.
Additional entered after the deadline will not count toward the top teacher prizes, but might be accepted if they don’t change the event schedule.
