Exhibition Judges

Becoming an American Hemerocallis Society (AHS) Exhibition Judge carries with it serious responsibilities in training and judging. Exhibition judges are always to be guided by the knowledge that they are representatives of the AHS, and their actions reflect directly upon the AHS. The obvious and key responsibility of judges is to enhance the image of the AHS in all possible ways. There are two very important functions of exhibition judges. First, there are the basic requirements for their training and continuing education; and secondly, there is the ethical demeanor with which they discharge their judging responsibilities. For more information about becoming an AHS Exhibition Judge.


There are approximately 450 Certified AHS Exhibition Judges. The link below will take you to a list of these judges by Region. There is also a list of Exhibition Judges Liasons for each region. Judges who need judging assignment should contact your region's Judging Liason.
