Each individual is limited to one entry per competition. There will be a winner for each category; however the Baronial Champion will be the individual with the highest total points for three categories. The categories this year are as follows:

Bardic – this will be an oral presentation of poems, readings, or dramatizations. It does not have to be memorized. The entries are to be by individuals, not teams. The Time allotment for each presentation is a maximum of two minutes. (The winner of this Bardic Competition does not become the Dreiburgen Bard. That competition is at another event.)
