    • First through eighth places will be given in each contest.  First through third places will receive medals; fourth through eighth places will receive ribbons.  For Yearbook, plaques will be awarded. There will be no award assemblies.
    • Ties for final overall school ranking shall be determined by comparison of entry placement.  The school with the greater number of entries earning first place shall be awarded the overall place.  If the school’s remain tied, the school with the most second place entries shall earn the higher place.  The comparison shall continue through all places if ties remain.
