I *have* thought about it..., I have several ideas. For the 3, one would be the
winner of the competition, one selected by a panel of judges, the 3rd by
acclamation of the populace. That hits all the majors. The beauty: none is
ranked higher in victory than another, nor is any of the three activities weighted
more that the other 2. None has a title that *seems* to carry more weight. All 9
are simply the winners.
All that, and the concept is period, too.
