Approximate three finalists will be selected to read their speeches during the awards ceremony. It will be video recorded and featured on Elijah Clark State Park's Facebook.

Finalists will bejoined by a parent to see whose combined "spits" go farthest. The winner will receive a prize. Who don't want a year's worth of bragging rights as the best seed spitter?!
