The Ed and Mickey Richardson Award is awarded to the exhibit that best represents the collecting and exhibiting interests of the late Ed Richardson, OTB:
Any exhibit in any of the competitive classes at BNAPEX is eligible to win the award.
The award was established in 1983 by the Prairie Beaver Regional Group on the occasion of the 50th wedding anniversary of Ed and Mickey Richardson, and is sponsored by the Group. The award recognizes the extensive contributions of Ed and Mickey to BNA philately, BNAPS, and to members of the Regional Group.
Ed was a president of BNAPS, a two-time BNAPEX Grand Award winner, the chairman of two BNAPEX conventions, and a frequent BNAPEX jury member. In addition, he undertook extensive research in many areas of BNA philately and published numerous articles and handbooks to share his findings.
