Stimulus Package

Encouraging Garden Clubs to Hold Standard Flower Shows

The Flower Show Committee has prepared a stimulus package to encourage clubs to hold Standard Flower Shows. The package will contain a model schedule for a Small Standard Flower Show (SSFS) with choices of titles that a club may adapt to suit their needs. Other items in the package will include entry tags with information on where to order them and how to complete them and samples of appropriate awards ribbons. Any club that has never had a flower show or has not had a Small Standard Flower Show in the past five years is eligible to participate. A Certificate of Achievement will be awarded to clubs that complete this new venture.

The Student Schedule Correction Committee has written the model schedule including three divisions, Horticulture, Design and Special Exhibits as well as the necessary Rules and General Information. The club must reproduce their selected schedule for each member and the judges and purchase the necessary ribbons and entry tags. An approved panel of NGC judges must judge the show.

The procedure is as follows:  All information may be e-mailed

  1. The club requests a model schedule from their Regional Schedule Correction Chairman.
  2. The club members select the schedule with their choices of class titles and returns it to their Regional Schedule Correction Chairman. He/she approves the choices and sends it back to the club along with the sample package.
  3. When the show is over, the club sends a copy of the schedule, signed and dated by the three judges who judged the show to the Regional Chairman.

The Certificate of Achievement will be sent promptly.
