This special award goes to the exhibitor who accumulates the most points in Food Preservation using the following scale:

  • 3 points for each blue ribbon
  • 2 points for each red ribbon
  • 1 point for each white ribbon

Entries must include at least 3 different classes of products in the Food Preservation Department. Heidi was awarded 10 Blue Ribbons in 3 categories of Food Preservation and a Best of Class Award for her Sunset Jam.
