Also during the closing ceremony of the Tower Climb, Ian Sherrington, on behalf of the Sherrington family, presented the Barbara Sherrington Memorial Prize for the most outstanding display in the Wild Alberta Expo in memory of Barbara Sherrington, a wonderful school teacher and dear friend and supporter of AWA. The displays were judged based on a number of elements including: visual attractiveness; level of interest; opportunity for interaction; engagement of the public and staff; and volunteer knowledge of their programs and/or products.
