February 3-5, 2022 the Iowa Auctioneers held their annual convention in Des Moines, Iowa. The conference included continuing education courses, new industry information, new ideas and materials for the auctioneer and Auction Company plus a great opportunity to network with other auctioneers. One part of the meeting is set aside to showcase the talents and abilities of attending auctioneers with a chance to be named the 2022 State Bid calling Champion.
After this year’s preliminary round of 15 entrants, 5 are selected by a panel of 5 judges to progress to the finals followed by another round of auctioneering and 3 questions regarding a variety of topics within the industry that must be answered. These questions have not been heard by the contestants prior to their appearance in the final round. The same 5 judges will score the finalists and determine who will be crowned champion.
