I got a first place with a 39, a third with a 36, and a 30 that didn't get anything. Comments were good, probably entered my cider in the wrong category so I'll try it in the specialty if there's a comp near by before it's gone. Overall good input, I found the National judge typically scored me lower than the non-certified judges. It's nice to see in the comments that they enjoyed your brew, despite a low score. Funny that National judge noted that my Mead didn't seem to have high enough ABV for a Sack Mead (9%), when it was actually about 17%, must have been too sweet or something to hide the booze.
