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.

SECTIONAL AWARDS

 

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.

The best single frame exhibit in the show earns a specially selected award which varies from year to year but is always one which will be proudly displayed by the winner.
