How to Win!

General Door Prizes

All attendees are automatically entered into the general door prize drawing.

The winners of the general door prizes will be drawn Saturday afternoon and posted after 4 pm near the Hospitality Table in the Concourse Level of the Conference Center. Pick up your door prize from the Hospitality Table Sunday morning from 8-11:30 am. A photo ID must be presented and your conference badges must be worn when picking up your prize.
Prizes not picked up will be forfeited. 

Special Door Prizes

are donations that will appeal to a smaller segment of our attendees and have an individual raffle ticket.

Attendees will each receive one ticket in their registration packet for the special door prize items. Deposit the raffle ticket (after printing your name on it) into the appropriate box on display in the Vendor Area on the first floor of the Conference Center. The drawing for these items will be during the Honors and Scholarship Awards Presentations immediately prior to the Saturday evening Feature Presentation by Billie Weiss in the Fine Arts Theater.
