Las Vegas, Nevada—At the 2023 NSSGA Annual Convention, Washington Rock’s photo was honored as the ROCKtober 2022 Aggregates Industry Photo of the Year.
The photo of the company’s rock at the Upper Nisqually River Levee Retrofit project won first place in the ROCKtober photo contest based on the prompt “Our Aggregates and Industrial Sand Products Used in the Community.”
This is Washington Rock’s second recognition by the NSSGA in less than a year. Washington Rock’s Kapowsin Quarry also received the Gold Award for Community Relations Excellence at the NSSGA’s Legislative & Policy Forum in September 2022.
Washington Rock’s social media followers were asked to pick their favorite photo out of nine choices. The Nisqually River photo, captured by Advertising and Public Relations Manager Eve Hart, was submitted to the contest after being chosen as the fan favorite. Read the full description of the photo on the NSSGA press release.
The National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA) advocates for issues that impact the aggregates industry. Washington Rock is a family business that operates two mines in Orting, Washington: Kapowsin Quarry and King Creek Pit.
