How to become a Student Judge

By Alice Witterholt

Any active garden club member is invited to attend the Flower Show Schools that are sponsored by National Garden Clubs, Inc., and held in many states. Each course covers Flower Show Procedure, Design and Horticulture. There are four courses consist of a full day of school and 1/2 day of school and exam. To become credited you must pass the given exam in each course with a minimum score of 75. The textbook for these classes is the Handbook for Flower Shows, revised 2017.

Flower Show judges promote the goals of our organization by sharing their knowledge and encouraging and participating in Flower Shows on the state level.

Flower Show courses taking place within the CAR-SGC states are listed at CAR-SGC.org/member-education.
