Derby not over yet: museum holding annual hat contest

Kentucky Derby Museum

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Derby has ended but the Kentucky Derby Museum is trying to keep the fun going with a Derby hat contest.

The museum is inviting professionals and amateurs to enter their hats in this year’s “It’s My Derby” fashion exhibit.

The entries will be judged by an expert panel that will choose 20 to 25 hats for display in the museum exhibit for one year. There will be a “Judges’ Choice” award for best overall entry and a “Most Representative of Derby” award, for the hat that best captures the essence of the Derby.

Entries will be accepted through May 31 during museum hours. Hats must be delivered or shipped and postmarked by that date.
