The American Royal Invitational Qualifying Criteria:
Only Grand Champions are invited. No pass downs are accepted.
Invitations will be extended to the qualified team name/head cook combination. Should the team name or head cook change after qualifying, the team must enter the American Royal Invitational under the qualifying team name/head cook combination. Should the same head cook have qualified with more than one team, he/she may enter the American Royal/KC Masterpiece Invitational Contest only one time.
An invitation will be mailed from the American Royal to the qualifiers in mid August with a deadline for returning the application by September 1st. If an invitational team would like to also compete in the Open Contest, it is MANDATORY for that team to complete the Open Application ahead of time so a space can be reserved.
Qualifying Contests Include:
·Contests with a “qualifying state championship.” A state championship is a contest with a state proclamation signed by the Governor with at least 15 competing teams the first year and 25 competing teams each subsequent year.
·Contests with a minimum of 50 competing teams are qualifiers and do not require a “state championship” proclamation.
·A state with only one contest must have a minimum of 15 competing teams to be considered but does not require a “state championship” proclamation.
To be considered a “competing team,” teams must submit entries for all contest categories required to be the grand champion or overall winner of that event.

*Grand Champion of previous year’s American Royal Open Contest
*Grand Champions of previous five (5) year’s American Royal/KC Masterpiece Invitational Contest
