Today the National Cornhusking Association sponsors a contest the third weekend in October to determine who is the best . There are twelve classes that are from ten to thirty minutes long that people can participate in. There are nine states that are members of the National Cornhusking Association, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, Minnesota, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, South Dakota and Nebraska.
