I don’t usually brag about myself, but I must say that I did pretty well for my first ever judged show!
For those of you who are unaware of how entries into BSI show are judged, I’ll try to explain it:
Each entry is judged on a point system first, and depending on the points you get, you are awarded a certain ribbon:
- 95 points and above - Award of Merit
- 94 to 90 points - Blue Ribbon/First Place
- 89 to 85 points - Red Ribbon/Second Place
- 84 to 80 points - Yellow Ribbon/Third Place
- 79 to 70 points - White Ribbon
After they award every entry a ribbon, they then judge all the entries that were given an Award of Merit ribbon against each other, and then decide which entry is the Best of the Division, and the runner up.
