One of our themes for our 2016 show is “Deja Vu” which celebrates our 20th anniversary by having one theme cover the previous themes. If you built for the theme previously, or perhaps didn’t finish one, here’s your chance. Obviously these themes cover almost everything, so consider putting your best theme subject in the category while others can go in the standard categories. If you won a theme before, bring it back with your trophy!
