Portland Rose Society Awards
The celebration of Portland’s Best Rose has become the occasion for announcing and awarding several Portland Rose Society Awards.
One of these awards is the Bronze Honor Medal of the American Rose Society for service to our organization. The PRS board of directors nominate and vote on the recipient of this award. One of the requirements of receiving this award is that the recipient must be a member of the American Rose Society. Due to this restriction the pool of possible recipients has become very narrow. In 2012 the Portland Rose Society announced a new award to honor dedicated PRS members who are not members of the ARS. This award is called the Portland Rose Society Gold Medal.
The other major award voted on by the PRS board of directors is the Lifetime Achievement Award. If you look into the past of these lifetime achievement award winners you will have seen them volunteering almost anytime the PRS needed a volunteer.
