About Us

 

Welcome to AOS Judging, Tampa and Orlando!

The American Orchid Society’s judging system is one of the most highly respected horticultural award systems in the world. At nationwide monthly judging and worldwide sanctioned shows, highly trained AOS judges evaluate and recognize new and superior forms of orchid species, improved forms of orchid hybrids and plants exhibiting superior culture.

 

Judges

American Orchid Society judges are dedicated volunteers who serve the membership and the orchid-growing public through participation in the Society's judging system. Each judge has made a sincere, long-term commitment, and gives much of their personal time and resources. AOS Judges are not compensated for their services or travel to various judging events.

 

Visitors

The general public is invited to enter their orchids and observe the judging process. It is kindly requested that any comments or questions regarding the orchids under review be held until the evaluation has been completed by the center judging team.

 

Thank you for being a part of the Florida North Central Judging Center

American Orchid Society Judging Centers are self-supporting. Judges are volunteers. They do not get paid for services to the orchid community. The center does not receive funds from the AOS to operate. Like groceries and gas, Florida North Central Judging Center operating expenses have increased over the last year. Both of our judging center locations saw an increase, almost double in rent.

 

To help cover administrative expenses, to pay our rent and our awards photographer, FNCJC conducts several fundraisers each year by way of auctions and seminars open to all. If you have participated in the past, we thank you for your support. 

Financial donations to support our judging center should be made out to 

Florida North Central Judging Center

and mailed to our Treasurer, Jennifer Reinoso
