Peoples Choice

Selected by attending membership at each annual AKA Convention, the Peoples Choice award is purely based on general appeal and popularity, sometimes making winning this award more exciting than Grand Champion.

Below is a partial photo gallery of People’s Choice winners, if you can help us fill in missing years (info/photos), please contact portal AT kite DOT org to volunteer.
