Three of our society publications won awards as follows:Some winning entries

  • Membership brochure - First place (Class 6 brochure)
  • Yearbook cover - Third place (Class 2 yearbook cover)
  • Newsletter – Honourable Mention (Class 8 newsletter)


As well, society members brought home:

  • First place in the “Apple of My Eye” Arts competition
  • First place in a “Gardening Success” Creative Writing competition


As the OHA is made up of 270 societies and more than 30,000 members, it is an achievement for us to bring home awards again this year.


The September-October issue of The Garden Post, available to our members (click here), contains a reprint of the award-winning “Gardening Success” short story, as well as photos and reports from our event delegates.
