A little insight into fair competitions, at least here in NW Ohio

The "Winner's Circle" special edition of the local paper came out yesterday and I found my name and all the ribbons listed.
What I found interesting was that not all categories appeared to have entries --- for example, there were 13 categories for entries of framed pictures and only five had ribbons listed; while there were 12 categories listed for entries into framed samplers and only 3 had ribbons listed!
And not all categories got all three ribbons awarded! For example, I won blues in ornament - cross-stitched and ornaments - perforated paper and my blues were the only ribbons listed! No competition?
I haven't done a line-by-line comparison of entry categories and actual ribbons awarded but it may well indicate that entries are not very robust. Maybe I should target some of the categories not entered in this year and guarantee myself more wins? Grinning evilly!
