Ophelia Taylor Horticulture
AHS Region 12 has made available the Ophelia Taylor Horticulture Award (formerly a medal, now a pin) in memory of Mrs. Bright Taylor. This pin may be earned at any accredited AHS show. An exhibitor may receive this award only one time. If this award is to be offered, it must be printed in the show schedule.
Classes 1 and 2 must be judged by Senior Exhibition Judges on a special score sheet furnished by the AHS Exhibitions Chair. Upon completion of judging, the General Show Chair or Tabulations Chair must collect the score sheets from the three (3) judges, and the Tabulation Committee shall tabulate the scores. Any winning Entry must score ninety-five (95) points or above individually for each of the five (5) scapes from each of the judges. No person who has an Entry in this section may serve on this Tabulation Committee, nor may such an exhibitor observe the score sheets or the Tabulation Form.
Each of the Ophelia Taylor Horticulture Award Judges shall sign and date the score sheet.
Upon completion of the judging and tabulation, the score sheets shall be sealed in an envelope, and they must be returned to the AHS Exhibitions Chair with the Final Show Report within 2 weeks of the show date. Scores should not be discussed with the exhibitor(s) or anyone except the Show Chair and the Tabulation Chair. The score results will not be official until they have been verified by the Exhibitions Chair or the Exhibitions committee.
The following classes will be offered:
Class 1: five different registered cultivars
Class 2: five different seedlings
