Our first annual Heartland Skills Competition was nothing short of amazing! After the last couple of years, it was beyond refreshing to see our entire Heartland family gathered in one place. Thank you to our Kansas City Hometown for ensuring the day was one nobody would forget. There was so much for everyone to enjoy! Our team had fantastic raffles and giveaways of phenomenal prizes, such as an autographed jersey and baseball from Cardinals pitcher Jack Flaherty. We also had our 5th Anniversary Photo bus on site, air inflatables, and face painting for the kids! Our families also enjoyed tasty eats from some of the best food trucks KC offers. And to top it all off, our families were given a first-hand exclusive look at our bottling process with our Production Facility tours.
All our participants brought their A-game, and the competition was as fierce as ever! But when the dust settled, Jamie Fleer and our Kansas City Hometown took home the most hardware with two Gold, one Silver, and one Bronze. We then had a 4-Way Tie between our Wichita, St. Louis, South, and Central IL Hometowns, each walking away with three medals.
Special thank you to our sponsors, brand partners, volunteers, and everyone who helped make this day such a success!
