Almost thirty-five years ago I picked up Signs of the Times magazine's annual contest issue at my local sign supplier. As I perused the glossy pages of the magazine I wondered at the winning entries. I promised myself that some day our work would be good enough to be judged by my peers and be good enough to appear there. I first worked up the courage to enter our signs in the prestigious sign contest in 2005. To my amazement we were awarded an honorable mention that year in the illuminated signs category. Since then we have been honored many times in various categories.
This past year we only finished one project which we of course entered into the Signs of the Times contest. Today it became official. Our team was again honored with a first place (tied) award in the Sign System category for the Cultus Lake Adventure Park signs.
