I volunteer with a group that has a Halloween party every year and used to give a prize for the best costume. Last year they stopped giving prizes because someone had joined the group who is a professional artist and costume-maker and they didn’t think it was fair for them to compete or to be left out.
This year they are saying they won’t have the contest at all and we are all so disappointed.
Queenie, we all love getting dressed up. What do you suggest?—Missing the fun
Hold the contest, but ask the professional artist and costume-maker to be a judge, not a competitor.
