Contests at each Meet*

At most of our meets the WISE Division holds model, photo and railroad-related craft popular vote contests. These are free to enter and open to the public.

Bring something that belongs in one of the categories below (and check the rules page just to be sure - we don't have many but we do have a few) to one of our meets. Our Contest Director will get you setup with a number and a small tag to fill out describing your entry. After that it's a blind vote by attendees which are tallied at the end of the meet culminating with the award anouncements. It's that simple and that fun!

Remember, you can’t win if you don’t enter.

The Awards:

Best of Show: Plaque and two (2) gift certificates for NMRA members. Non-members only receive one certificate.

1st Place: Award certificate, and two (2) gift certificates for NMRA members. Non-members only receive one certificate.

2nd Place: Award certificate.

Youth 1st Place: Award Certificate and two (2) gift certificates.
