OC Floriculture: Flower Design Competition

OC Floriculture: Flower Design Competition

Show YOUR design at the South Dakota State Fair in the newly added flower design competition.  Consider participating in the flower design program in the Horticulture Building during the SD State Fair.

To easily explain how to get involved in the flower design competitions, you simply need to take some cut flowers from your house or garden plants that you have raised or taken care of since this spring and make a design in the division and class you choose.

 For instance, in Thursday’s Artistic Design Show, one class is “Golden Anniversary”. It seems like many of us have one or two plates or vases from our parents/grandparent’s anniversary celebration. Incorporate that into a flower design. Another class is “God Bless America”. Use a red, white or blue vase that can hold some of your favorite flowers.

The Botanical Design show on Saturday will be even easier. It calls for a picture frame or a wrapped package with added real flowers.

Judging for the competitions will be live! Laura Cross, Chad Kruse and Cara Osier, all certified South Dakota florists, and Dr. David Graper, retired SDSU Horticulture Specialist, will be the judges.

There is no entry fee for these events.  Entry forms can be submitted along with entry on day of show.   For additional questions call the Horticulture Superintendent at 605-350-7839.
