Ricks solution is great and I would go one step further.
'Only those stations pre-registered will be eligible for awards'...
What other sporting event in the world can you claim a category
after you have performed??
I like the WRTC log submission immediately following the close
of the contest....
Some things aren't feasible, but pre-registering for awards is!

> Just as NAQP & Sprint teams must "Register" before the event, any SO, M/S, M/2, or M/M entry seeking to submit a post-event log in hopes of winning something needs to "Register" their category status with the Sponsor up to a One Hour cutoff before the checkered flag starts. If logs can be submitted electronically, so can registration be done.
