Winning photos by CAR-SGC members

Look Deeply into Nature and you will understand... Albert Einstein

Garden club members throughout the country were inspired by this quote for their entries in the 2017 NGC Photo Contest. Six of the twenty-seven photographs chosen as finalists were the work of four CAR-SGC member photographers. We are very happy and proud to congratulate Kathy Green (Maryland), Claire Jones (Maryland), Lee Kitcher (National Capital Area), and Marcy Cunkelman (Pennsylvania). Their winning photos appear at the top of this page. 

Several finalists for 2018 and 2019 photo contests will be added to these no later than September 1, 2019, so please visit this page again to see them.

Awards for children and teens

Many garden clubs offer programs that introduce young children to the wonders of nature, encourage teens to explore, appreciate and promote nature, and provide college scholarships to students who pursue careers in fields such as agronomy, landscape design, and conservation-related professions. Congratulations to all the CAR-SGC member garden clubs who sponsored youth programs and their individual award winners. 2019 youth winners are included in the list that is linked at the bottom of this page.
