OHA Competition Highlights


Our society delegates to the 2015 Ontario Horticultural Association (OHA) Convention that took place in Ancaster, Ontario from July 17 to 19 brought home many awards this year, fully documented in our Autumn issue of the Garden Post and the Fall issue of the OHA's Trillium. OHA Trillium

Five of our society publications won awards as follows:

  • Membership brochure - First place (brochure)
  • Open Gates Water Garden Tour Passport - First place (special event brochure)
  • Bookmark - First place (bookmark)
  • Yearbook cover - Third place (yearbook cover)
  • Open Gates Water Garden Tour Poster - Third place (special event poster)

As well, adult society members brought home:

  • First place in an Arts competition
  • Multiple awards in Design, Horticulture and Collections

And, two of our Youth members garnered more than a dozen awards, including a Best in Show and a Judge's Choice rosette.


As the OHA is made up of more than 280 societies, many of whom participate in these annual competitions, it is an achievement for us to bring home so many awards.
