First place nets a nice cash prize plus trophy and the opportunity to compete at the world championship in Charleston, WV for a grand prize of $25,000. Monetary prizes awarded for second and third places also. The Green Lake Rotary Club will provide a local DJ and live entertainment provided by the Yellowhammers beginning at noon.
