February 8, 2020 – Contest Judges Training


TARA prides itself on being one of the few contests that offer important feedback to the entrants. We maintain our prestige by providing qualified judges. Be a part of the accolades – come to the training workshop.

This FREE workshop is acclimated to TARA members but is open to guests.
