Report by James Reinders.
The awards banquet at the Chicago convention was on Friday evening, August 19, 2011.
and Willamette Coin Club member Katie Reinders was awarded the "BEST YN EXHIBIT" award at
the banquet, which carries a Summer Seminar Scholarship as a prize. Katie's exhibit, "Happy
Birthday Oregon," was an updated and expanded version of what she exhibited at the PNNA
Spring convention in Tukwila. Comments from the judges at PNNA were very helpful in Katie's
rework to beat out some other incredible YN exhibits at the summer show in Chicago. Cliff
Mishler and she talked for a long time about her exhibit earlier in the day and again after
the award. Photo: Marc Ricard presents Katie Reinders with her exhibit award at the ANA
