Meet the Judges
The Coronado Floral Association is proud to enlist certified National Garden Clubs (NGC) Judges to adjudicate each Annual Coronado Flower Show. It takes 3-4 years to become Flower Show Judge – 2 years of academic study followed by the time required to create a Flower Show schedule, take a 3-hr NGC examination, and compete in Flower Shows winning a certain amount of blue ribbons in horticulture and design.
These talented men and women come from all over Greater San Diego county and as far north as Riverside county.
