Show-N-Shine Awards & Rules
Bonnier Events offers a "Pick Style" awards program at all 4-Wheel Jamboree events. At each event, the awards will be chosen by qualified Professional Judges, industry experts and qualified Bonnier Events staff.
Awards will be given on Sunday an hour before the show ends to the best from the main stage in the Street Zero, Street, Modified, and Pro Class categories. There are plenty of awards, from Best Make to Best Interior, Best Paint, Best Engine and so many more.
Judging is done Saturday ONLY between the hours of 10 am to 6:00 pm. There will be a judging seminar held at all events on Saturday at 9:30am before judging begins. Please make it a point to attend and ask any questions you may have! Sunday is reserved to ask the Judge how you can improve your vehicle.
YOU MUST WRITE THE NAME YOU REGISTERED WITH ON YOUR WINDOW CARD IN ORDER TO BE JUDGED. i.e. Johnny Appleseed. Please do not write a nickname or your initials. If you do not write your full name, your vehicle will not be judged. This is crucial for our Judge and 4-Wheel Jamboree team to accurately describe you at the award ceremony, find you in our system, and award you the correct prize.
For the judges to see and take your complete vehicle into consideration, it is recommended to have your hood, tailgate, and doors open.
There are several classes within each category with awards for each. There will be first and second place winners in each class. There are 4 "Grand Champions" chosen at each event. Grand Champions will be determined by the accumulation of points for each class within your category. Grand Champions will receive an award, along with a special winners jacket. You MUST be present to accept your award. If you can't make the ceremony, you have the option to pay a small shipping fee to have it shipped to you.
There are also some awards open to all participants: Awards of Excellence (10 awards), Best Club Attendance, and Staff Picks.
