New Attendance Prizes Promote Education, Improve Show
To boost member knowledge and participation in its annual show, the Henry Shaw Cactus Society will add show-quality specimen plants to its regular selection of attendance prizes awarded at monthly meetings in 2008.
In exchange for the mature cacti or succulents, prize winners must research the plants' care and share that information with other club members by writing an article for the Henry Shaw Cactus Society Digest. After restaging the plants in appropriate pots, they must also enter their plants in the society's annual show.
The HSCS board of directors has several goals for this investment in plants for members. The directors hope to increase members' knowledge and understanding of plants, as well as the number of members who write for the Digest. They also expect to improve the overall quality of plants entered in the HSCS show and increase the number of members who participate.
