An Encouragement to Exhibit

The Board of Directors has done several things to encourage people to exhibit.

  • As of 2019, new exhibit classes allow you to choose the traditional approach by type of material, or the newer approach by theme or topic.

  • A monetary award of $200 is given to the Best of Show winner to offset expenses to take the exhibit and enter it in ANA competition. Beginning in 2019, this award will also be available to the fall Best of Show winner.

  • Exhibit rules were revised to be more in line with ANA rules to make the transition from regional to national exhibiting easier.

  • Since 2001, awards contain an actual coin or token to make them worth something - not just another plaque.

  • New display cases were purchased to standardize exhibit sizes and make them more attractive.

  • Exhibits have been taken out of the back of the bourse area and put closer to the entrance so the public will take notice of the displays. (They are now in a separate room just across from the entrance, at the annual PNNA spring convention in Tukwila, WA.)

  • What more can PNNA do to encourage exhibiting? If you have any suggestions or ideas, please let us know.
