 Updated Contest Information Effective 2013

The Grand Lodge has eliminated almost all of its previously supported contests.
The following 5 contests are the only ones in effect on the Grand Lodge Level:
 
•    Ritual
•    Website
•    Grand Lodge Convention State Exhibits
•    State Newsletters
•    All-American Lodge
 
The FSEA has decided to continue certain Lodge contests at the state level.
By keeping competition on a local level, the spirit of Elkdom and our good deeds
become more rewarding for those Lodges that could not necessarily compete
nationally.
 
The FSEA is supporting the following state-level Lodge contests:
 
•    Lodge Bulletin
•    Scrapbook
•    State-All American Lodge
•    Drug Awareness
•    Americanism Essay
