Massachusetts Orchid Society


Every year, the Massachusetts Orchid Society awards several physical awards at our Annual Show.
These include a number of categories, such as best specimen, best bloom, best miniature, and even best (or worst!) fragrance.

These awards are a really nice way to acknowledge the care that the winners put into growing these wonderful plants. Please consider sponsoring these awards, so we can continue to offer these wonderful and artistic prizes for our annual show. There are several types of orchids represented, so choose your favorite one!
