Hi, all, just a quick update on my namesake cookie contest at Kerry Vincent's famed Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show (OSSAS), September 30 (set-up day) to October 2, 2016.
Just today, I upped the ante on prizes in "Julia Usher's Decorated Cookie Competition" to a grand total of $1,750 in cash, with $1,000, $500, and $250 going to the first, second, and third place winners, respectively. Challenges and contests are a great way to learn and enhance your skills (and perhaps earn a little extra money! ), so I encourage everyone to sign up and give it a go! The show is great fun too, with the largest juried cake competition in the US, demos by celebrity guests (this year, those guests are Karen Portaleo and Joshua John Russell), and more!
The postmark deadline for submitting entry forms is September 1, and the forms can be found here on the OSSAS site. Don't forget to read all submission rules first, which, for my contest, appear at the bottom of page three in this document.
Cheers, and best of luck to all who enter!
Please submit any further contest inquiries directly to Kerry Vincent at firstname.lastname@example.org.
