At every NWA Convention we recognize four companies for their outstanding contributions at the annual watermelon auction. The awards are a time that we look forward
to each year, providing an award and a huge THANK YOU to those that go above and
In reviewing our process, we realized that there are a couple of suppliers that invest a
great deal of money to the success of the auction. So, we went to work to look at the
numbers, and created a fifth award - - King Supplier.
The King Supplier will be the company that donates the most in dollars to the NWA at
each year’s annual auction (bins, seed, plants, labels, chemical applications, etc.)
As a result, we had the honor to recently award the first-ever King Supplier Award to International Paper. Jim Mastropietro, one of our neighbors and I-P Director, accepted the
award in our offices recently. Many thanks go to International Paper for their contributions across many years of truckloads of donated bins for the donated loads.
We are truly excited to have this new award at our conventions in the future, and look
forward to providing the recognition that is due to our largest suppliers.
