Re-read the above..., I was trying to suggest 3 PER category.

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.
