CES Silent Auction at Extension Annual Conference

2022 CES Silent Auction

We are getting ready for a possible in-person Silent Auction in December at the 2022 Extension Annual Conference in support of the Support Staff Excellence Award! We would be very grateful to have additional volunteers this year! Please email Terri Fisher at if you would like to serve with us. Please indicate if you would like to part of the committee, or prefer to be hands-on at the conference only (in the event that it is indeed in-person).

Now is a great time to start planning your donation submission, if you would like to participate in that way. Here are some tips to help get started:

  • Summer is fair time! Snap up any unique items that might be showcased at your county’s fair!
  • Share your special talent! Do you sew, do woodwork, paint, make jewelry, bake, etc.?
  • Promote your business! Are you an independent seller for a company that sells purses, jewelry, makeup...?
  • Promote your community! Know of local/statewide businesses that would love to donate products or gift certificates for some additional publicity around the state?
  • Team-building opportunity! Whether you are a county- or state-based office, consider this an opportunity for a fun team project and donate a themed basket or individual item. If there is something unique about your county, consider that as a theme. We would be honored to have a donation from every county/office!

Thanks again for your support.
