                      For example, a competitor plans to enter State HOSA
                      competition in the Medical Photography event. Knowing that
                      copies of the photos, CD and release forms are NOT

                      when taking the photographs, and is prepared to make
                      additional print and electronic copies of the photos as
                      needed. This competitor is prepared to go all the way to the
