Arrangements Judges

Jim Harrell, Chairman of
Arrangement Judges

It has come to my attention that there are judges that are unclear about awarding the higher awards. To receive a Royalty, Oriental, Artists or any other rosette or certificate, the winning entry must have received a score of 92 points or higher. The same is true for receiving an ARS Gold, Silver or Bronze Medal Certificate in a qualifying class. The only exclusion being that to receive these Medal Certificates, the roses must be grown by the arranger and must be indicated by “AG” on the entry tag. Standard and Miniature Classes (Traditional, Modern, Oriental Manner, Table, Princess and Duchess) Duke, Novice and Junior classes are eligible for ARS Medal Certificates. Judges may, at their discretion, withhold Medal Certificates if they do not consider the roses in an arrangement to be of high enough quality, however, if only one certificate is awarded it must be the Gold, it cannot be Silver or Bronze, as the rule says the highest scoring arranger grown arrangement is awarded the Gold. If two arrangements point score equally in consideration for a Medal Certificate, the one with the better quality roses should receive the higher placing.

I hope to see many of you this fall at the Atlanta National Show. Everyone should take advantage of this opportunity to participate in a National Rose Show. You‟ll be surprised at how well you can do. The class schedule will be posted on the DSD Website as soon as it becomes available.
Good Luck in the fall shows.
