Show Award Sponsorship


Each year many members exhibit plants, arrangements, photos and gesneriad arts and crafts at the Convention Flower Show.

You can be part of a Convention Flower Show, whether you attend convention or not, by sponsoring a Convention Flower Show Award at any time during the year. When sponsoring an award, you will have the opportunity to indicate the individual in whose honor, or in whose memory, you are making the award. You may also indicate the type of award you would like to sponsor. However, requests will be filled on a first-come basis. Award donors will be contacted if any changes must be made regarding sponsored awards. The Awards Chairperson will determine how undesignated awards will be distributed. Awards not presented will be held for the new convention flower show. All award donations are tax-deductible for members in the United States.
