Personal Awards

Nomination Guidelines for Personal and Regional Service Awards:

  • All nomination letters must be sent either by email or by USPS to the AHS Awards and Honors Chairman by September 1 each year.  e-mail: awards@daylilies.org
  • Any AHS member may nominate worthy individuals for any of the Personal Awards.
  • Any AHS member may nominate worthy individuals from his or her home region for the AHS Service Awards.
  • Currently serving Board members at the time the award is voted on or presented are not eligible, although current Regional Presidents are eligible.
  • Each nomination letter must be typed, either double or single spaced and should be limited to no more than two pages.
  • All nomination letters should contain a summary of the nominee’s worthiness for the award.
  • Nomination letters for the Bertrand Farr Medal should contain a listing of all AHS Awards received by the nominee to date. This list can be obtained from the Cumulative List of Awards available on the AHS website. A listing of Pop Poll Awards as well as Regional and Flower show Awards should also be included. Any unusual or special accomplishments or advancements in hybridizing should  be noted.
  • Nomination letters for the Helen Field Fischer Award should contain a listing of services the nominee has performed at the National level.
  • Nomination letters for the Moldovan Mentoring Award should cite examples of instances where the nominee has mentored beginning hybridizers, youth members or local daylily clubs.
  • While it is perfectly acceptable for several individuals to collaborate in writing nomination letters for worthy individuals, in the interest of preventing any hurt feelings or misunderstandings, it is recommended that these nominations be submitted in confidence and not shared with those being nominated.
  • The announcement of winners and medal presentations for Personal Awards will be made at the Annual Awards and Honors Banquet.  Regional Service Award winners will be announced at the Friday evening meeting.
