GRAND NATIONAL CHAMPIONS

At each AKA Convention, the winner in each kite category of the Kitemakers’ Competition becomes eligible for the Grand National Champion award. The Judges assess the merits of the individual category winners against each other to select the Champion. The Grand National Champion will not necessarily be the entry having the highest point total in the judging of the individual kite type categories. The winner of the Grand National Champion award also maintains first place in his or her kite category.
