2016 Exhibitors’ and Judges’ School #5

Twice each year, the Ohio Association of Garden Clubs holds the 2-day educational opportunity Exhibitors’ and Judges’ School. As the name suggests, the schools are packed with knowledgable speakers on a myriad of subjects – all in the interest in becoming a better grower, floral designer and flower show exhibitor. In addition, the school is the training arena for those wishing to be an OAGC accredited flower show judge. OAGC flower show judges must maintain certain amount of attendance of these schools in order to maintain their active judge status.

The full series runs 6 schools over a span of 3 years. Student judges must pass tests and undergo a student judge period before becoming accredited.

This year’s School #5 was held June 20-21, 2016. The following gallery highlights photos of the Creative Design portion of the school. The date for School #6 will be held September 19-20, 2016 at Deer Creek State Park Lodge and Conference Center near Mt. Sterling, Ohio.
