The twenty (20) Entries that receive the highest Judges Scores will each be declared a potential winner. Each winner is considered a potential winner pending verification of his/her eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. In the event of any ties, the Entry with the highest score in criterion (ii), Spirit, will be deemed a potential winner. In the event there are still any ties, the tied Entries will be rescored and the Entry with the highest overall Judges Score will prevail. If a winner is found to be ineligible or does not comply with these Official Rules, he/she will be disqualified and the Entry with the next-highest Judges Score will be named a winner.
