2018 Rockie Awards Show

The 2018 Rockie Awards Show was a raucous and rowdy affair as usual, and good times were had all around.

A few notables from Saturday night’s event:

The Silver Medal Award went to Sherie Moody-St. Clair from the Idaho Lottery

Drake Cooper took home Best of Show for their J. A. and Kathryn Albertson Family Foundation work.

Oliver Russell and Scentsy both won at the regional level as well — a Gold regional ADDY for Oliver Russell and a Silver for Scentsy. Oliver Russell’s submission has since been forwarded to the national competition.

Congratulations to all the winners.
