5. If a competition’s participation falls to only one competitor after the competitor registration deadline, the National Craft Championships (NCC) committee may cancel the specific craft’s competition. In this case, the NCC director will notify the competitor’s sponsor immediately to reach a mutually agreed upon resolution, taking into consideration several factors, including the sponsor’s financial investment up to that point.
