Washington’s Best Sungrown Cannabis

It’s more than just bragging rights.

All winners will be publicly honored at the event with a beautiful one-of-a-kind handmade glass art trophy. WSIA will issue press releases to media partners highlighting winners after the event and publicize winners on our website as well as across our social media networks.

In prior year’s we’ve had media coverage of the event including the Spokesman ReviewLeafly,  Marijuana Venture & The Stranger, and winners have reported increased sales associated with promoting their product as a Washington Sun Cup Award winner.

Last year we had more than 25 cannabis companies enter 75 sungrown products.

We are looking forward to once again bringing together the most inspiring sungrowers and processors in the state and celebrating the hardest working folks in the industry.
