Awards Meeting

Who will be the Favorites this Year?

Every October, garden club members come together to see if they or their clubs have won any of the National, Regional or State Awards presented at the Annual Awards Meeting. This is a time to recognize outstanding contributions made in youth education, community beautification, horticultural excellence, environmental awareness, and many other areas of garden club activities. The Federation’s highest honor, the Bronze Medal, is presented at this meeting.

Whether winners or not, all clubs members in attendance gain insights and ideas for their future club endeavors.
