2011 Show Brochure: Community Award

Point Agricultural Society is delighted to receive continued sponsorship of £1000 from the Stornoway Trust to be used as prize money for The Community Award, an involvement and regeneration competition for exhibitors in the Point area.  This competition is now in its sixth year and has been a great encouragement for the people of Point to exhibit and support their village.

The community accumulating the most points and the runners up will receive substantial cash prizes, which must be spent for the benefit of the winning community as a whole. A trophy will also be presented to the winners.

Competition Rules and Guidelines  

Rules for Stage One - Points Accumulation

1.   All exhibitors from the Point area will be awarded a point for each show section they enter.

2.   Points will then be awarded as follows, according to the Judge’s decision for each competition class as set out in the Show Brochure:

1st Prize = 3 points        2nd prize = 2 points   3rd prize =1 point
3 points will also be awarded for each Trophy won.

3.   Points will be totalled on a community basis as set out on the 'Eligible Communities' page of this site.

4.   The community with the highest total points will receive a prize of £700.

5.   The community with the second highest points will be awarded £300.

6.   Both these awards will be subject to approval at Stage 2 of the competition.

7.   The Stornoway Trust stipulates that prize monies can only be awarded to properly constituted organisations and cannot be awarded to any one individual.

Rules for Stage Two - Prize Allocation & Award
