2016 Exhibitors’ and Judges’ School #6

This post is better late than never! OAGC E&J School #6 was held September 19-20, 2016. The following galleries highlight: Creative Designs (taught by Myrna Cordray), Winter and Holiday Shows (taught by Mary Lee Minor), and Dish Gardens and Fairy Gardens.

School #1 will be held May 22-23, 2017 at Deer Creek State Park Lodge and Conference Center near Mt. Sterling, Ohio.

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.
