NAN 2014 - Judges!

The time has come for us to seek out judges for NAN 2014!

Judging nominations are being accepted for the 2014 North American Nationals to be held July 8-10, 2014 in Lexington, KY.

Currently the judging package includes:
- $100 per day stipend + $10 for lunch.
- NAN T-shirt with the option to purchase additional t-shirts.
- A special volunteer plaque.

In addition, NAN 2014 judges are permitted to enter, by proxy, 1 division per day as long as that they are not judging that division. The same entry fees for NAN apply for judge proxy entry.

We are looking for judges in all divisions and if you know someone who is qualified to judge for us, please send me their name, address, email and phone number. They will be sent a short survey to determine what they feel most comfortable judging. There is no limit to the number of people one person can nominate, and you don’t need to be a NAMHSA member!

Come join the fun in Lexington this July!

*Nominations should be emailed to Yashka Hallein at Please put “NAN Judge” in the subject line.
