Once you complete that form, we will email you an invoice. Please allow up to three business days to receive your invoice. If you need to adjust your number of Blue Ribbon Awards entries, simply go to the confirmation email that you will receive. It will allow you to edit your response, and we will adjust your invoice accordingly. The second form is the actual entry form for your submission(s). You must submit BOTH forms to complete the entry process, and your invoice must be paid in order to receive Blue Ribbon recognition. Here is a link to each form:
