This annual award honors an individual who had contributed to the building of festivals in the state of Indiana.
The award was named to recognize Josephine Hauck, a founder of the Indiana State Festivals Association in 1973.
Josephine served as the Executive Director of the 500 Festival, growing it into one of the greatest festivals held in the US.
Charlene “Shorty” Harrell, representing Lagro Good Ole Days in Wabash County, passed away suddenly while attending the ISFA Convention on Saturday, November 10, 2012 in Indianapolis.
In her honor, an annual grant is awarded to an ISFA Festival member that has a budget of less than $10,000. The grant gives the festival the opportunity to attend the Annual ISFA Fall Convention for free.
The Ann Retseck Memorial Grant makes attendance to the annual ISFA Fall Convention possible for ISFA members who need assistance in paying their representatives' costs.
This grant is dedicated to Ann Gettinger Retseck for her donation of time and effort into her community's festival, the Merom Bluff Chautauqua.
The Indiana State Festivals Association (ISFA) is a non-profit organization created to “Empower Indiana Festivals, Events and Organizations through education, networking and leadership.” ISFA is devoted to promoting and enhancing festivals and events throughout the state.
