PRIZES PER EVENT:
Each Event will have THREE winners, Gold, Silver and Bronze.
There will also be THREE overall Grand Prize winners chosen from those who compete in and complete AT LEAST 5 of the 6 challenges.
JUDGING:
Each event will be judged by a team consisting of 1 Sweet Shoppe Designer, 1 Sweet Shoppe Sugarbabe, 1 Non-Competing Community Member and 1 Celebrity Guest. Each judge will choose their favorite layout from those submitted to their event, and these 4 layouts will be voted upon by the community for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
PRIZES:
As we’re trying to create an overwhelming sense of community-wide goodwill, we’re offering a ton of prizes this year with 3 places for each competition in addition to 3 overall grand prizes! There are a ton of chances to win, which is just the way we like it!

 

So does that have your appetite for competition revved up?  Here’s your first look at the 2012 Sweet Shoppe Designs Summer Games and Prizes! Each challenge will be based off of the official Olympic Sports and will consist mainly of design challenges, rather than concepts.
