Show Award Sponsorship

All award sponsorships submitted for the 2020 convention flower show have been refunded or will be carried over to the 2022 convention in Tacoma, as designated by each sponsor.  We are now accepting sponsorships for awards at the 2022 Convention Flower Show in Tacoma.

Each year many members exhibit plants, arrangements, photos and gesneriad arts and crafts at the Convention Flower Show. The complete list of show winners at the 2019 Convention Flower Show in Cincinnati is available here. The awards distributed for these entries are sponsored by individuals and chapters.

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 and  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 next convention flower show. All award donations are tax-deductible for sponsors in the United States. The deadline for submitting award sponsorships for the 2022 convention is June 1, 2022.

Sponsor an award for 2022 online or by mailing this form to Paul Susi, Awards Chair. Before sponsoring one of the awards listed below, please refer to this list of awards to make sure that the award you have in mind has not already been sponsored.
