OTY Awards

Each year, club members nominate the chips, tokens, silver strikes, and slot cards/room keys that they feel are artistically the best that were produced during the year. Once all nominations are made, those members who made a nomination get to vote on their favorites. The winners are awarded the prestigious “Of The Year” title and are presented to the club at the national convention. Below you can view the winners in each category from previous years.
