Hat Contest Winners

Ladies and Gentlemen, Furry and Non Furry Friends, and Everybody Else!!!

Now the moment that we have all been waiting for! The announcement of the Easter Bonnet Competition winners!! But first, let me explain how the winners were determined.

Upon completion of the contest, my mom organized all 64 entry photos into albums on her Gallery, which is on the internet. She then emailed each of the five judges the link to her Gallery to find the albums and look at the photos.

Five qualified and impartial judges were previously chosen by the contest sponsor, my mom. None of the judges have dogs, cats, or hamsters. (One has fish, but they can't wear hats.) The judges are located in urban, suburban, and rural areas in various states, thus representing a cross-section of the nation's population, and do not know each other or are not related to my mom or to me. All of the judges are human and adults.

Each judge voted for first, second, and third place in all four categories and then emailed us their selections. My mom then assigned a point value to each winner -- three points for first place, two points for second place, and one point for third place. The points were totaled in each category, with those contestants having the most points receiving first place honors, the second most points second place honors, and the third most points third place honors. In two of the categories, the voting was very close, and the winners were determined by the last judge to return his ballot.

So, here goes.
