Judges - Region 9

The accredited judge is the backbone of The American Iris Society judging program and is responsible for the selection of award winners.  It is the judges’ votes that determine which irises receive awards and thus are recommended to the public.  Serving as a judge is a privilege and duties should be fulfilled with dedication. 

 

The judge is a representative of The American Iris Society and should conduct himself/herself in a manner which will bring credit to the organization.  The most viable aspects of being a judge are voting for how irises perform in the garden and determining the quality of iris blooms in iris shows.  Supporting these judgements requires continued education and practice experience.
