ADS Judges Credentials Chairman

We encourage all Daffodil Show chairmen to invite Daffodil Student Judges to judge in your shows. This will give them valuable experience and further their training as they work to become accredited judges. Carol Barrett has the current list of ALL judges, and will send it upon request. Additional Judges reference material and forms can be found on our Judges & Student Judges Forms page.
