I know I have trouble seeing these competitions coming and I'm sure some others do too, so I would like to ask anyone who might have information regarding upcoming competitions to go ahead and give everyone else a little heads up in this thread.
I will go ahead and start us off with the Sasquatch Brew Festival! http://www.northwestlegendsfoundation.org/homebrew.html
It looks like it takes place in Eugene Oregon... I think read somewhere in the information that they choose a few winners to give a full scholarship towards a brewing education!
