LOC Philatelic Exhibit Receives Awards
I don't like to toot my own horn too often, but I was pretty pleased with myself when my philatelic exhibit at the St. Louis Stamp Expo on the history of the Library of Congress won a gold award and the display champion award. My exhibit competes in the Display Division which allows the inclusion of some non-philatelic artifacts in the exhibit. I recently wrote another post about the exhibit. This is only the second time that I have displayed the exhibit, and on the previous occasion it only received a silver award. My revisions to the exhibit evidently paid off. I will be showing the exhibit again at NAPEX, the Washington, D. C. area stamp show which is being held June 3-5 at the Hilton MacLean Tysons Corner. I will also be making a presentation to the Washington Stamp Collectors Club about the exhibit on June 1.
