The Challenge

The group has a Route 66 avatar challenge once every three months. We would like to see your best Route 66 image, one that you think personifies what the road is all about.

  1. No images from side trips will be allowed for the challenge – images must be taken along the road. A description of the image location on Route 66 will be required.
  1. Only one image per group member, please. If more than one image is submitted, all duplicate images will be removed, and then the member can re-submit one image to the challenge.

Judging / Voting Criteria

  1. Please vote for the image that you think best represents The Mother Road.
  1. Please do not vote for more than your top three favorites. You don’t have to vote for three, but if you are going to make multiple votes, please don’t vote for more than three.

Rewards & Prizes

  1. The winning image of this challenge will be the group’s new avatar for the next three months.
  1. Patricia, one of the co-hosts, will purchase a card of the winning entry. So if you win, you make a sale!

Additional Information

IMPORTANT: The location on Route 66 must be included. The state is required even if you don’t know any other location information. Entries without this information will be removed from the challenge.
