The Awards and Honors chair of AHS. Regrettably, the deadline for 2022 nominations passed on September 1. If you want to nominate someone for the award, you should write a short nomination letter for the individual and submit it before September 1 each year to the Awards chair. Guidelines for the award and what to include in the nomination letter should be found on the AHS site.
Some things to include are a list of cultivar awards won, perhaps mention awards the hybridizers cultivars won at accredited shows, service the person has given at the local, regional and if applicable, national level. Include why you think they are deserving of the award.
