Additional Information


If applicants select a Class 1 entry (traditional float), that organization will receive $20 off the application fee. 


We strongly recommend Class 1 entries this year, as Class 1 entries will take priority over all other entries. For example, if application numbers 135 and 136 are walking entries, and application numbers 137 and 138 are both Class 1 entries, numbers 137 & 138 will move up in position, resulting in applications 135 & 136 being put on the waitlist.
