Changes to State winner qualifications:
If a state was only 1 contestant, in order to qualify for the prize for that state the contestant in that state has to get more votes than the contestant in 1st wildcard position. You can see wildcard leaders by clicking on link below. If the contestant wishes not to participate and wishes not to continue in the qualifying round because of this change they have up to June 9th to withdraw from the competition and they will receive a full refund. If the contestant chooses to continue and does not get the votes required to win the prize they will still move on to the next round of the competition to compete for the grand prize. Click Here to view Leader board.
States with 2 or 3 contestant must confirm that they are going to be active in the voting process in order for that state not to be considered as state with one contestant. There must be at least 2 contestants actively getting votes to be considered as a competition in the state.
States with 4 or more contestants are good.
Changes in the Best-In Categories
If a category at the end of the qualifying round has only 1 contestant, that category will not qualify for the prize as there was no competition within that category. The contestant in that category will receive a refund for that category.
