Lucille  Schavoir Award  (established 1978):  This award may be awarded annually to a club for outstanding garden club work during the awards year.

The recipient shall be chosen at the discretion of The Federation Awards Committee from nominations submitted by the general membership either to the Awards Chair or directly to the respective chairs of the Awards Committee before June 1st.  This award is considered the highest award presented to an individual garden club member.

Club Certificate of Appreciation (established 1978):  This award allows each individual club to recognize outstanding work, length of service, or whatever is applicable to honor one of its members in a fitting manner in any given year. Applications must be sent to the Federation Awards Chair by May 31. The recommendation must be approved by the Awards Committee. Only one Certificate of Appreciation per club per year.

Good Deed Citation  (established 1980):  A thoughtful gesture of goodwill aptly describes the Citation which recognizes an unusual worthwhile project that otherwise does not fit into the award categories.
