After countless hours of program building, number crunching and team-name matching, KCBS is proud to announce the OFFICIAL 2008 TOY RESULTS!

From top to bottom, from coast to coast, we have endeavored to report not only the Top Teams in our competition categories, but we’ve processed data on every contest for every entrant so you can see how you stacked up against all your friends!

So if you competed in a KCBS contest in 2008, check out the results in the “Rankings” section (Our Members box) to see where you finished! There are more than 4,000 teams in our database, so look hard! And if you don’t find your team at all, give us a shout. We’ll see if we can help find you!

From all of us at KCBS, CONGRATS to all the winners! And thanks to EVERY TEAM that competed! You helped make the 2008 season the best ever!
