Hopefully I captured it all. I know some of our fellow out-of-state exhibitors that show in NJ had a really good show too.  Congratulations to all of our youth members! Remember, even if you didn't take home a Congress medallion, you're still a winner by having the courage and drive to be there!


Our Youth Advisor Michelle Kuchta has calculated and posted the 2022 year-end standings. Congratulations to all of our winners! Make sure you look for your awards email and send in your selection ASAP.
