I'd ask that all contest organizers consider gathering the home town and State of every team that signs up for their contest.
Then, at the awards ceremony, when you call out the winners, announce where the team is from as well.
With more teams traveling a lot and many new teams cooking in the last few years, it would just be good information to know where a team that is walking came from to get to the contest.
Some events do this, but most don't.
