The judges were pretty tough this year, and some of the categories were very large, especially in photography. When Public Enemies was filming in Columbus, I decided to take some black and white photographs of the streets, and the judge must have liked them! I entered 3 separate pictures of various parts of Columbus, and each of them won something. Even though I wish I would have won first place (hee hee), I got 2 seconds, and a 4th for the pictures. Even some of the crowd commented on how nice the town looks.
I had a couple "flops" with my baking, including : Chocolate Chips Cookies, Scones, and Cloverleaf rolls. They didn't place at all. I was a bit bummed out, but you can't win them all. :)
