Lentil fest wins awards

Lentils, like these Palouse-grown legumes from Joseph's Grainery in Colfax, are low in fat, high in fiber and packed with iron, magnesium, Vitamin B-6 and protein. One cup has about 230 calories. (Adriana Janovich / The Spokesman-Review)

The 2017 National Lentil Festival received six awards at this year’s Washington Festivals and Events Association conference.

The festival, founded in 1989, was awarded first place awards for best programming, event photography, T-shirt design and broadcast media. The programming award acknowledged the fest’s partnership with Hinrichs Trading Co. and the development of the “Garbanzo Garden” agricultural area.

Other awards included second place for best overall public relations/media campaign and best multimedia/social media.

The awards were presented in March. This year’s fest is Aug. 17 and 18 in Pullman.
