Judging and Prizes

- All pies must have completed an entry form online within 48 hours of contest start time prior to contest date.
- There will be a minimum of 3 judges, and pies will be evaluated by entrant number only (no names).
- Judging criteria will include overall appearance and taste. Note that pie pan will not be considered a part of the presentation
- Scoring: Each judge will assign a numerical value (1-5) in each category without discussion among judges. The pie receiving the highest total numerical value will be the winner in that category. In the case of a tie, the judges will review and discuss those pies before a second vote.
- Judges will not know the names of entrants until the winners are announced.
- All winners will be announced after the judging pregame.
