Can I Apply for a Deep South Garden Club, Inc or National Garden Club. Inc. Award?

We have many FFGC Awards for Clubs, Circles, District and Individuals.

  • Flower Show Achievement Awards
  • Flower Show Related Awards
  • Junior Gardener Awards
  • Youth Contest and Youth Awards

You will find that while we have many FFGC awards they are not always moved on to Deep South Garden Clubs, Inc. or National Garden Clubs, Inc. to be judged because the FFGC award doesn't fit the criteria of DS or NGC awards.

The Compatibility Chart provides an opportunity for you to write awards that go directly to Deep South or NGC, if FFGC doesn't have an equivalent award already-----HOWEVER you MUST be send to FFGC Awards Chair by STATE Deadline for Awards.

Use the Compatibility Chart to see if your FFGC Award # or subject is also offered by DS or NGC. If your FFGC Award is compatible write your award to fulfill the criteria for FFGC and/or Deep South or NGC.
