Mid-Central Region NMRA
Charlie Keeling Monthly Model Contest

We have a model contest each month at our Division 8 meetings. Meeting attendees vote on the entries based on their personal preference - formal judging is not a part of the monthly contest. The contest year runs August through July and points earned are totaled annually. At the annual July Picnic, awards are presented to the individuals earning the most points (first, second, third) for the contest year.
