NOJEX / ASDA
Year after year, NOJEX attracts a wide variety of exhibits which makes the show enjoyable and educational for those attending. As a way of expressing our appreciation to exhibitors, we present awards which winners will truly treasure. Awards are presented at the Awards Banquet.
THE GRAND AWARD
The exhibit judged to be the Best in Show receives a beautifully crafted Hummel figurine with a philatelic theme mounted on a wood base known as The Hummel Post Coach “The Mail is Here”.
THE RESERVE GRAND AWARD
A Danbury four column desk clock will be presented for exhibit judged to be the Second Best in Show.
THE SIDNEY SCHNEIDER MEMORIAL AWARD
This award is presented to the best exhibit by a North Jersey Federated Stamp Club member. It is a beautiful brass replica of an early postal scale mounted on a wood base. And it actually works!
Each year the NOJEX committee reviews the areas covered by the exhibits in the show and groups them into sections such as United States, Foreign, etc. The number of sections varies from year to year depending upon the makeup of the exhibits. The best exhibit in each section is awarded a desk clock.

CONVENING SOCIETY AWARDS
Each year a number of philatelic societies elect to hold their annual conventions at the NOJEX show. Many of them have special awards which can only be won at these annual meetings. Whenever this occurs, the NOJEX committee ensures that the jury is made aware of the availability of these highly prized awards.
