  4. Responsibilities and Requirements • Hold current membership in AHS • Know, grow, & show typical CVs from all classes, areas – visit many gardens • Be familiar with as many CVs as possible • Encourage new judges and new growers • Improve own judging skills • Attend and support clinics • Promote daylilies & encourage youth • Own and be familiar with handbook

  5. Ethics of Judging • Be on best behavior. • Judge own show only in emergency. • Don’t judge in unaccredited shows. • Accept invitations if possible and respond promptly. • Follow show schedule and other show official instructions. • Tell others on panel if you don't know CV.

  6. AHS Awards • AHS Standard System of Awards • AHS Major Awards (including Best In Show Ballot) • AHS Special Horticulture Awards • AHS Achievement Medal • Ophelia Taylor Horticultural Award

  7. AHS Judging Standards and Organization • Must employ the AHS standards • At least 3 exhibition judges per panel (2 • senior) • Judges’ panel is final authority • Classification Chairman may disqualify entries or correct classification errors –TACT – mark misnamed entries “misnamed” • Use appropriate AHS scale of points and AHS Std. System of Awards

  8. AHS Major Awards • Purple Award • AHS Rosette - best purple in mandatory sections • Best in Show – does not include special medal classes • Sweepstakes Award

  9. AHS Standard System of Awards(p. 34) For Name Classes • One Blue - 90 or more 95 • One Red - 85 or more 92 • One Yellow - 80 or more 89 For Seedlings • Each entry is judged on own merit

  10. AHS Major Awards • Special horticulture award sections and local on-scape sections are not eligible for AHS rosettes • Must judge both on-scape and off-scape if asked

  11. AHS Major Awards Purple Award and Best-in-Section, part A • In a name class, the Purple Award (Rosette) is awarded to the highest scoring entry whose score is 95 pts. or greater • For determining the Best-in-Section, a post-it bearing the point score (calculated to 1 point) is affixed to the entry tag • The highest scoring interim score receives the section rosette

  12. AHS Major Awards Purple Award and Best-in-Section, part B • Ties broken by re-judging perhaps using a finer interval • All post-its are then removed • If the rosette section has been judged by more than one panel, the whole set of purples is re-judged by a special panel

  13. AHS Point Scoring System – 15 Min (Demonstration if in season) • Registered CVs • Scapes • Off-Scape Blooms • Seedling Scapes

  14. Special Notes • Proliferations • Leave them on • No deduction if the prolif. does not distract from the overall beauty of the exhibit • Minor deduction for removal • 36” Rule – no longer required, merely suggested

  15. Judging Registered Daylilies on Scape • True to CV – give full credit • If quality being judged falls short of “true to CV”, points are deducted • Use AHS descriptors found in Figure 9 of the handbook' • Don’t expect a CV to do what it cannot do

  16. Scale of Points for RegisteredOn-Scape CV’s • Flower 50 Color 10 Form 10 Texture 10 Substance 10 Size as to CV 10 • Scape 35 Harmonious relationship to flower, height and strength 15 Buds 10 Branching 10 • Condition and Grooming 15

  17. Judging Seedling Daylilies on Scape • To encourage CV’s superior to those currently in commerce • Cannot be judged by “true to CV” 25 points for distinction • Use AHS descriptors found in Figure 9 of the handbook and guidelines for judging distinction found in Figure 10

  18. Scale of Points for On-scape Seedling CVs • Distinction 25 Different from and superior to other CVs • Flower 40 Color 10 Form 10 Texture 10 Substance 10 • Scape 30 Harmonious relationship to flower, height and strength 10 Buds 10 Branching 10 • Condition and Grooming 5

  19. Scale of Points for Registered, Individual Blooms Off-Scape • Form 20 • Texture 20 • Substance 20 • Color 20 • Size according to CV 10 • Condition 10

  20. Best-in-Show Judging • MUST use Best-in-Show Ballot • Record subtraction from 100 to nearest 0.5 • All judges fill out a ballot unless judging ethics suggest not • Ballots unsigned (secret) • Tabulation Committee tabulates the ballots

  21. Best-in-Show Ballot

  22. Best-in-Show Tabulation • The tabulation committee assists the show chairman in tabulating the Best in Show ballots • The individual totals are copied onto the tabulation sheets • The Best-in-Show computer program may be used • See page 72 of the handbook for example

  23. AHS Achievement Medal • Three senior Exhibition Judges • Judge only entries worthy of consideration • Judge individually without discussing • Specific scores neither announced or discussed by judges or show officials • Never state personal opinion about entry • Seedling scale of points • Scores of at least 2 judges average 90 pts or more

  24. AHS Special Award Ophelia Taylor Hort. Award • Three senior Exhibition Judges • Use special score sheets • Judge individually without discussing • Specific scores neither announced or discussed by judges or show officials • Five different CVs or seedlings • Class 1 – use registered CV scale of points • Class 2 – use seedling scale of points • Lowest score must be 95 pts or better for each scape

  25. Master Panel (Slide 1 of 2) • One or two panels may be used • Panel – 3 Sr Judges or 2 Sr Judges & 1 Jr Judge • Three named CV scapes, three seedling scapes • One score sheet for named CV scapes and one for seedlings • Panel collaborates to get consensus on scores and descriptive comments – no comment boxes blank • MUST use descriptive words of “merits” and “faults”in Figure 9 of the handbook

  26. Master Panel (Slide 2 of 2) • Register as MP on Student Registration Sheet • Senior judges get accreditation extended four years from the current year • Junior judges get credit toward becoming a senior judge • Junior judges are urged to serve on a master panel – important part of training

  27. Recent Changes - 2005 • Ophelia Taylor Award may be given at any accredited show, not just in Region 12 shows or in shows at regional meetings • The spider form is redefined to include the spider variant form, i.e. 4:1 or larger • The addition of the Extra Large form caused redefinition of Large cv., i.e. less than 7” • The Extra Large cv. was added to the classi-fication and show schedule, i.e. 7” or more

  28. Recent Changes - 2008 • Registered polymeres are to be shown in the same section as registered doubles. • CVs with multiple-form registrations one of whose forms is double or polymerous (e.g. Polymere/Spider) are to be shown in the same section as doubles • CVs registered as Spider/Unusual Form are to be shown in the same section as spiders

  29. Recent Changes – 2008Example From Sample Show Schedule Example • Registered as: Place in Show Section: • Double/Spider Flowers ......................................... Double, Polymerous, and Multiform Flowers • Double/Unusual Form Flowers ............................. Double, Polymerous, and Multiform Flowers • Double/Polymerous Flowers ................................. Double, Polymerous, and Multiform Flowers • Double/Spider/Unusual Form Flowers ................. Double, Polymerous, and Multiform Flowers • Double/Spider/Polymerous Flowers ..................... Double, Polymerous, and Multiform Flowers • Double/Unusual Form/Polymerous Flowers ........ Double, Polymerous, and Multiform Flowers • Spider/Unusual Form Flowers .............................. Spider Flowers • Spider/Unusual Form/Polymerous Flowers .......... Double, Polymerous, and Multiform Flowers • Spider/Polymerous Flowers ..................................
