Certificate for Meritorious Achievement in Orchid Education

The AOS Education Committee’s Certificate for Meritorious Achievement in Orchid Education is presented to “an individual or individuals for long-standing, exceptional endeavors in the field of orchid education.”

The mission of the AOS Education Committee is to develop a variety of clear and concise educational materials, provide funding in the form of grants for advanced orchid education programs, and proactively cultivate new audiences through published AOS articles, external networking, and social media. It is often too easy to take dedicated, talented volunteers for granted. We would like to acknowledge those that have given their time and talents to promote the mission of the Education Committee.

Eligible candidates should be AOS members in good standing. This award is meant to showcase exceptional endeavors in orchid education, such as webinars, lectures, classes, projects, or written material.
