Winning Cravers are invited to Columbus, Ohio, to attend the Hall of Fame induction ceremony this fall. Cravers can submit original stories about their relationship with White Castle, why White Castle is meaningful to them, and the efforts they have made to satisfy cravings for all the menu items White Castle has to offer at http://www.whitecastle.com/cravers/hall-of-fame/new.
