BTA "OG" Awards

The Original ("OG") 9 awards

BTA Trophies

The Budtender Awards team created 9 Award categories which are referred to as the “OG” Awards.

Each category will have 5 finalists. The winner will be announced at the Award Show (date TBD).

The number of votes tells the judges how much the community believes you should win.
BUT the finalists are not based on the number of votes but on a wide variety of criteria, including questionnaire responses, customer & co-worker testimonials, news, etc. The Award Winners are selected by industry experts & members of the Budtender Awards team.
