THE SWEET TRAY

The Sweet Tray was presented in 1974 in memory of Elizabeth L. Sweet, for excellence and inspiration in the art of flower arranging. The tray will be awarded each year to the member who received the highest number of points for the year’s competitions in Class III A or B.  Only one entry per person may be judged for points.  At the beginning of each new competition year, the Design Committee will assign club members to Classes based on the following: new members and previous Class I competitors who have not received a blue ribbon will be assigned to Class I.  Members who have received a blue ribbon in Class I in a past year will compete in Class II.  Members who have received a blue ribbon in Class II in a past year will compete in Class IIIA.  Any member who has won the Sweet Tray in a previous year will compete in Class IIIB.  Any member who has won the Sweet Tray three times will compete in Class IV but is no longer eligible to win the Sweet Tray.  Class assignments are for the calendar year of competitions.

Scale of points for awarding the Sweet Tray:

         1st = 6,                     2nd = 4,               3rd = 3, 

         Honorable Mention = 2,

         Best in Show = 1 point.           

         Every entry receives 1 point.
