The winner in each of the AKA Grand National competitive kitemaking categories becomes eligible for this award. The Judges will assess the merits of the individual category winners against each other. The Grand National Champion will not necessarily be the entry having the highest point total in the judging of the individual kite type categories. The Grand National Champion also maintains first place in his or her category.
