New Rule for Regional Competition!

In an effort to mitigate the effects of the new four-region structure, ODACS has implemented the following rule for regional competition.

"In any regional competition category that has at least four entries, both first and second place will advance to State Competition."

New Competition Fee Structure Beginning in 2016

Individual Category Group Category
Entry Fee for Regional Competition $3 $9
Entry Fee for State Competition $6 $18
