                   REGIONAL APPLE PIE BAKING CONTEST

       CONTEST INFORMATION

Just three (3) years ago The Rotary Club of Winchester made some exciting changes to its annual Apple Harvest Festival!  We have a new name, a new location, and numerous new events, activities and vendors.  Our annual Apple Pie Baking Contest is also new and improved. 

In response to numerous requests from the public over the years, we are opening the Apple Pie Baking Contest to students age 12-18 and to adults age 19 and up!  Contestants will compete in one of these two categories and both First Place ($100) and Second Place ($50) awards will be presented to the winners in both age categories.  In case of a tie in scores, Rotary will duplicate the cash prize so that both winners will receive the full amount. 

APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED BASIS WITH A MAXIMUM OF 12 PIES ACCEPTED IN EACH OF THE TWO AGE CATEGORIES.

The contest will take place in Clear Brook, VA at 12:15pm on Saturday, September 15th, 2018 in conjunction with Rotary’s Shenandoah Valley Apple Harvest Festival at the Frederick County Fairgrounds.  All pies must be delivered to the Apple Theme Booth (set up in the Arena) inside the Fairgrounds between 11:15am and noon.  Pies will not be accepted before 11:15am and pies not received by noon will not be judged.   Judges will rate each pie based on its appearance, texture of crust and filling, and flavor. 

Every contestant entering the contest will receive free admission to the Festival, a gift bag from Rotary, a name badge and 2 additional complimentary admissions to the Festival for family or friends.  The gatekeepers have been instructed to allow pie bakers and their two guests through the gates so please identify yourself at the admissions gate. 

The Festival is traditionally held rain or shine.  Should the contest have to be cancelled due to some unforeseen event, contestants and/or parents/guardians will be notified personally at their home phone number or their cell phone number.  Please make certain that a number is provided on the OFFICIAL ENTRY FORM where we can reach a contestant or, where appropriate, a parent or guardian to convey this information, if needed. 

Please fill out the OFFICIAL ENTRY FORM and email the information to (patriciadstiles@gmail.com).  All forms must be received by 3:00pm on Thursday , September 13th.  For more information, contact Tricia Simpson at the email address provided above or call her at 540-878-0802 (cell).
