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.
