Allan Steinhart Reserve Grand Award

The Allan Steinhart Reserve Grand Award is presented for the second best competitive exhibit shown at a BNAPEX convention. The award is a piece of artwork selected by the BNAPEX Convention Committee. A small plaque is affixed to it.

The Reserve Grand Award has been in existence since the first BNAPEX convention was held in 1949. It was renamed the Allan Steinhart Reserve Grand Award in honour of the late Allan Steinhart, OTB, a former Chairman of the BNAPS Board of Directors, a former Chairman of the BNAPS Handbooks Committee, the Chairman of BNAPEX 1993 held in Toronto, a BNAPEX Grand Award winner in 1990, and, prior to his death in 1996, Canada’s preeminent postal historian.
