6. Anthers may be removed, but it is preferable to leave them on. Where competing stems are otherwise equal in quality, removal of anthers would require some penalty in

JUDGING
1. Entries not made according to schedule are automatically eliminated.

Section C.
Points:
Condition …………………… 30
Vigor ………………………… 20
Placement on stem…………… 20
Substance of flowers ………… 10
Form of flowers ……………… 10
Color of flowers ……………… 10
Total 100

Exception: In selecting an entry to receive the Earl Hornback Award neither the age of plant, size of specimen, amount of inflorescence, nor placement in class are to be
considered. The winning specimen must have true distinction and in the opinion of the judges, represent the greatest advance in breeding.

3. The Lighty System will be used for judging Class 2 and Section C. Breeding Advance will be evaluated as follows:
Points:
Vigor ………………………… 20

Form of flowers ……………… 20
Color of Flowers……………… 20
A first place entry must score high in at least two attributes.

and Trophies. The “Best in Show” must score 90 points by the Official NALS Scale. It may be part of a multiple stem entry scoring less than 90 or it may be an entry in a Lighty
class and receive less than a First Place ribbon judged by a different scale.

5. In judging collections, diversity of form and color as well as uniform quality and balance of collection as a whole are to be considered. Each stem must score 90 points or
over for the collection to win a First Place ribbon. Any Section A collection awarded a First Place ribbon will receive a special Award or Trophy.

6. In classes for three of the same species, variety, or cultivar, utmost consideration will be given to uniformity.

7. Judges should not make entries in sections they have been assigned to evaluate.

8. An exhibit of unusual merit, not provided for in the schedule, may be given a special commendation if the judges so desire.

9. Judges are requested to provide written comments about all entries for Certificate of Commendation and Award of Merit.

10. Sweepstakes Awards will be awarded to the person with the most First Place ribbons; in the event of a tie the Second, Third and Honorable Mention ribbons will be
