NOTE: This contest has expired.

Do you have the Cinematography Merit Badge? Are you a budding Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, or Peter Jackson?

    • "No Sash, No Flap, No Service."
    • "Safeguard This Pamphlet"

  5. Submissions will be judged on each of the following criteria (not listed in any priority):
    • Overall quality
    • Relation to title

  6. An individual or lodge may submit multiple entries, but can win "great show seats" only once.
  7. Submissions must be postmarked by July 1, 2004, and each submission must clearly identify the name, address, lodge name, and telephone number of the "director."
