There were a total of 21 tipis at NPW 12 in Crescent City, Illinois and 12 owners elected to participate in the tipi contest.
Judging took place on Saturday morning, 13 July at 9am. The four volunteer judges this year were: Don Walske, Granbury, TX, Jim Lenoch, Coralville, IA, Kevin Michaels, Fort Madison, IA and Joel Hendricks, Clinton, IL. All four are experienced lodge owners and previous participants of national powwow tipi contests.

“We are specially indebted to all of the tipi owners that brought their
beautiful mobile homes to the Iroquois County fairgrounds.
Tipis add a special touch to the pow wow experience and we enjoyed a large
number of visitors that walked through the tipi camp and enjoyed the
Saturday afternoon "open house". While the total number of tipis has gone
down from previous national pow wows the quality, diversity, and attention
to detail has gone up. We were also fortunate to have perfect weather
with bright sunny days and chilly evenings. On behalf of the PowWow
Committee I would like to thank everyone for their positive attitude, good
humor, and commitment to a high standard of tipi camping.”

Peter J. Durkin, Tipi Camp Coordinator, 18 July 02.
