"The winner gets $220 and a trophy; second-place gets $110" - Sun-Sentinel

The winner's title would be a wonderful recognition for this exceptionally talented young man and his family, however the monetary award appears to be based on a contest from the year the Joplin piece was written. It doesn't even come close to helping pay for the cost of the trip, food, lodging, etc. I certainly wish this young man very well, and know he will succeed in all of his future endeavors.
