2014 National Tree & Wreath Contests
In 2014, NCTA will not hold a national convention or conference, returning to the biennial format we traditionally had.

However, in 2014 the association will hold the annual National Tree and Wreath Contests at the Michigan and Mid-America Christmas Tree Summer Meeting in Allegan, Michigan. The regional meeting will be held July 25-26, 2014 and  will feature the largest industry trade show in the Midwest as well as a variety of educational sessions, equipment demonstrations and tours. Producers from all states are welcome and encouraged to attend this regional event.

The National Christmas Tree & Wreath contests will coincide with the event. If you are just entering the National Tree or Wreath Contest, you do NOT need to register for the Michigan/Mid-America event. You will still need to submit a contest entry form before the July 10 deadline, which can be downloaded below.
