Awards are given in various carving categories, art and photography. Special awards are given for best carver and best artist. There is also a Children’s Choice Award given for a favorite artist. The Curtis Merritt Award of Excellence is awarded to the exhibitor who displays excellence as an individual, as well as an artist and/or carver. This award is voted on by the exhibitors. Awards will be announced at 3pm on Saturday.  

Wooden Easter eggs hand carved and/or painted by various exhibitors will be offered in a silent auction. This auction has been a highlight of the show each year, with some eggs fetching handsome sums. Auction closes at 4pm on Saturday.  

The Pre-loved Treasures Silent Auction has been a favorite in recent years. In 2020, this auction will benefit the Chamber's efforts to rebuild the LOVE Chairs in Robert N. Reed Downtown Waterfront Park. Auction closes at 4pm on Saturday.
