CHANGES TO DEPARTMENT CONTESTS:

LECTURER:
I have decided to still hold two of the contests for Subordinate members using electronic submission. The rules are the same as printed in the Program Booklet. All entries must be submitted as an attachment to an e-mail (files no larger than 100MB please). The entries must be received by September 10 to Jacqueline_bishop@hotmail.com. Entries will be judged, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will be announced at the Michigan State Grange session. In addition, the first-place winners in each class will have their entries printed in the Michigan Grange News. There will be no Best of Show, as National Grange is not holding their contest in the same way as in the past.

    A. Story: My Favorite Holiday (400-600 words) 

​2) Photography Contest (3 classes)
    A. Animals
