The Armstrong fair has walked away with some hardware.

For the second year in a row, the Interior Provincial Exhibition won first place in the categories of communications and agricultural education exhibits at the B.C. Fairs convention at Sun Peaks

“It is great to see the communications award again which highlights the key marketing and advertising components,” said Bryan Burns, IPE general manager.

The agricultural education exhibits recognized the IPE for educating the public about agriculture in an interesting, innovative manner.

The other category the IPE placed in was in the member’s choice awards. Submitted was the winner of the photograph division – B.C. Fairs category.

“This category was about depicting agriculture and Elizabeth Kalin, a local resident, received a third place with an outstanding photograph taken,” said Jeanne Noble Harter, IPE president.

‘It was a very cute kitten next to a farm bucket and we are so proud of her.”

The IPE also submitted the Okanagan-Shuswap Lamb 4-H educational board and placed third.

“It is an awesome accomplishment to be recognized on a provincial level,” said Burns.

“We really want to say thank you to the community for all their participation in making the IPE the excellent event that it is and continuing to support us.”

 

The 114th Interior Provincial Exhibition runs from Aug. 28 to Sept. 1, 2013.
