Cookies will be divided into several categories:

• Traditional (This category will include cookies such as snickerdoodle, peanut butter, oatmeal raisin and other cookies that people are familiar with.)

• Nontraditional/wacky (This category is for cookies with unusual ingredients or preparations.)
