The list of fourteen winners contains only two non-coastal sources. Is there significance in that?

Amina Harris, director of the UC Davis Honey and Pollination Center and co-chair of the honey category, says:  
 
The Good Food Awards are given out in five regions of the United States. A link to these regions is here: http://www.goodfoodawards.org/the-awards/regions/  
We encourage beekeepers from all over the country to enter the awards in order to have a great representation of honeys from across the nation. That said, more enter from the ‘Western Region’ than any other. Note that the ‘West’ does not include Oregon or Washington. They are part of the North! And generally, the ‘East’ is second with entries.  
I understand that your question has to do with ‘coastal’ winners. Please note the land locked states – or those bordered by the Great Lakes that had winners last year: Nevada, Tennessee, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois. It does not seem so imbalanced when looking at it from this perspective.  
 
The list of winners follows broken into region:

C&C Orchards, Wildflower Honey, Massachusetts
