The success of Winterblitz hinges on YOUR generous support. We are seeking Category Sponsors and are asking $25 per category. Your support will go 100% to securing the awards to be given to the winners. Your name will be prominently displayed below as well as on the contest table the day of the show.
To participate, all you need to do is reach out to us (see below) and either write a check or send a pay pal. It’s just that easy!
In addition to Category Sponsors, we are seeking Major Supporters (such as Model Club Chapters that support the event, hobby shops or generous individuals). Feel free to reach out to us if you are interested in becoming more involved. We have reserved a few special categories to be underwritten by Major Supporters.
Thank you in advance.
