The contest is more than just winning. The primary purpose of the Web Site Contest is to improve your web site to make it more meaningful to web site visitors and club members. Each Web Master that enters will receive constructive comments from judges outside the SCFMS about the strengths and areas of your web site that could be improved. Most of the areas that need improvement are easily implemented.
