The annual NAWCC Crafts Competition features nearly 20 categories for members to show off their maker skills.

We have a Youth Craft competition (17 and under) as well as an Adult Craft competition. Please encourage members in your chapter to enter the competition in both the adult and youth craft division. The competition is open to the public.

All categories will be judged by qualified experts except for the "People's Choice" award that is determined by ballot. Ballots will be in the crafts exhibit area and can be cast for your favorite entry in the Crafts Competition. A ribbon will be attached to the winning item in the crafts exhibit area after judging has taken place. The People's Choice winner receives a trophy at the National Convention Banquet (Saturday, 7:00 pm). Special thanks to Donegan Optical, in memory of their founder Bill Donegan, for donating the People's Choice trophy.

We are always looking for helpers and Judges for the convention. If you have any question on the Craft Competition, please call or email me William 'Bill' Slough, Crafts Chairman at Phone: 817-600-7501, sherlock.clock@outlook.com
