After being off the grid for awhile, the NPPA National Monthly Clip Contest has returned in 2017 and the first set of winners has been announced. The January winners represent the seven competition categories and have been posted to the NPPA competitions site.
A group of NPPA volunteers did the work to revitalize this NPPA contest.
“Getting the national contest back has really been a team effort. It started with Seth Gitner and his commitment to getting all the competitions a better platform with our competitions website, and with the design of our new entry system,” said Kyle Grantham, NPPA treasurer and national clip chair.
By also putting dedicated regional clip chairs in place, the contest now has timely results each month, building the foundation for the national judging. Grantham also thanked Matt Gade for his behind-the-scenes work that freed up Grantham to focus on the contest logistics.
“I'm very much the manager in the dugout. They're out hitting the home runs,” Grantham said of the volunteers.
“My hope is we'll have the national contest on the same progress we saw with the regional results and really use this first year to see where we can build and grow the contest,” Grantham said.
