Scapbook and Mascot Competition

Beginning in 2013 the first scrapbook competition was held at the Vicksburg meeting.  2013 and 2014 first place was awarded to North Carolina, and for the same years Tennessee took second.
Below you will find the document containing scoring info for a 50 page/or first 50 pages if longer scrapbook.  State and chapter scrapbooks are judged separately.   This is for fun and not a requirement of course.  Please participate!

SCRAP BOOK and MASCOT Judging Information:

We will be looking for three (3) Judges

  1. Little girl for “the cute factor” about 11 of 12 years of age.
  2. Seamstress that knows manufacture and quality.
  3. Someone in advertising that knows “eye catching” and “sell-ability”.

Judges should be Roses.

They should not have a dog in the fight (Conflict of interest). Mike Mitchell will not be a judge but will act as judging administrator and pull everything together.  As this is new to the OCR, the guidelines & rules are in flux. If you have any improvements or can think of anything we haven’t, please let us know.

Mascot Judging

Will be judged in 3 categories, (1) appeal to children (by a child judge), (2) quality of item’s construction (crafting/sewing, etc) and determined by a qualified judge, and (3) sales appeal.  These 3 areas will be averaged for a final score. Mascots should be turned in at the Fridays OCR President Planning Meeting.

Scrapbook Judging

Scrapbooks should only represent one calendar year. The start and end dates are determined by your chapters or society. See attached Scrapbook Judging Sheet Society/Chapter.

State Scrapbook

Your State Scrapbook will consist of your State Society activities as well as your individual chapter activities under one cover. We will award a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbon at the Saturdays General Business Meeting and Social.

The Confederation has decided to allow each state to use your own time frame to start and end as long as it’s only one year.  Example: TN begins with April convention thru March where as NC begins with July thru June. This will make it much easier for those planning to submit their scrapbooks. Rules are on the website, only the first 50 pages are “graded”. Remember one year only regardless of when it begins and ends.

Scrapbooks should to be turned in at the Fridays OCR President Planning Meeting.
