Ways to Compete Each competition handbook has a variety of categories to choose from.
Read the handbook before you enter online for the competition. We cannot stress this enough. It is important before you enter online that you know what division and class you are entering for each entry. The online entry form does not provide the details and information that are in the handbooks. Each Competition has a different size and number of entry limitations, as well as other specific instructions
Entry Forms can be found in the back of each handbook and can be mailed to Creative Living at:
