Congratulations to John Mattia for winning the ARS Blake Hedrick Award!

THE BLAKE HEDRICK, JR. AWARD
Introduction This award is established in memory of Guy Blake Hedrick, Jr. to recognize outstanding rose exhibitors who display the highest levels of excellence, integrity, and respect for the ideals of showing roses typified by Mr. Hedrick during his long career as a rosarian. It is intended as a life-long achievement award for an exhibitor who has been a successful National, District, and local exhibitor, and also a model in sharing his/her knowledge in growing championship roses. Acts Worthy of Recognition The following examples may be used as general guidance to identify those activities that are deemed worthy of nomination for consideration: • Sustained success in showing roses at the National, District and local levels for a decade or longer by an individual or team who has consistently exhibited rose show entries of the highest caliber with integrity and spirit for the ideals of the American Rose Society; • Sustained lifetime achievement by an individual in devoting and focusing his or her educational talents and expertise to promoting the art of exhibition of the rose through consistent and reliable contributions to educating the public about exhibiting roses; and/or • Significant and sustained acts of achievement by an individual in organizing and overseeing the conduct of successful rose shows at the National, District and local levels.
