Jonathan Noel won the 2015 Kentucky State Champion Auctioneer title after competing against the finest auctioneers across the state, at the Kentucky Auctioneers Association’s 58th Annual Convention. This event was held February 7th through 9th at the Sloan Convention Center in Bowling green, KY. Contestants were judged based on voice, rhythm, clarity, microphone control, stage presence, speed and knowledge of their products being sold. The contest consisted of a preliminary round where the top 6 participants advanced to the finals. During the finals each contestant was required to answer a question (Why they would be a great ambassador for the Kentucky Auctioneer Association) in which each contestant was judged on their response. Spectators had the opportunity to bid and purchase items as part of the contest, with the proceeds going to St. Jude’s Children Hospital.
“This is a great accomplishment for me and I am extremely honored to receive this award. I look forward to representing the state of Kentucky at the International Auctioneer Championship this year in Addison Texas, July 2015. The friendships I have made along the way with this association will last a lifetime, I am extremely humbled when thinking of the long list of champion auctioneers that have won this prestigious award,” Noel stated.
The International Auctioneer Championship is hosted by the National Auctioneers Association (NAA) at the International Auctioneers Conference and Show will mark the 66th year for this event and it is being held in Addison, Texas at the Intercontinental Dallas Hotel.
