Judging will take place on July 25 and 26, 2016 at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, Iowa, immediately before Cheese in the Heartland: the 33rd Annual ACS Conference. Winners will be revealed at the annual Awards Ceremony on Friday, July 29 at the Iowa Events Center. For those cheesemakers unable to attend, the ceremony will be live-streamed online, so that everyone can witness this edge-of-your-seat cheese battling.
