ONTARIO ASSOCIATION OF AGRICULTURAL SOCIETIES (OAAS)
HAND QUILTED & MACHINE-QUILTING COMPETITIONS
Each year the Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies (OAAS) sponsors two Provincial Grand Champion Competitions. By entering this competition (sections 111-112) you agree to allow your quilt, should it be judged "champion", to proceed to the fall District Competition. If successful at that level, it will proceed to the Provincial Championship competition at the OAAS Convention held in February. Champions at the convention receive a $500 prize and the reserve champions receive $100. Note: If you win OAAS champion at more than one fair, you must consider the Agricultural Society nearest to your home address as the one from which your entry will be sent to the District Competition. Should you win more than one Best of Show title with a different eligible quilt, or machine-quilted quilt/wall hanging, at different Fairs, you may enter each winning entry in the District Competition.
