Horticultural Industries Leadership Awards

Nominate a deserving industry leader now!

Do you know a greenhouse or nursery professional who stands out from the crowd? Does your university mentor or extension researcher truly make a difference in the horticulture industry? Have you personally witnessed the positive impact your peer's actions have had on his or her employees or the community? Nominate them for the Horticultural Industries Leadership Awards!

The Horticultural Industries Leadership Awards (HILA), sponsored by Syngenta, will be the only national awards program to honor leaders from the greenhouse and nursery industries. Six award winners will be honored in these industry sectors in North America. 

HILA recipients will have made significant contributions to the horticulture industry, such as:

  • contributing to its development with their innovation and expertise
  • excelling in environmental stewardship
  • enhancing the lives of employees, customers, communities and the industry at large with their charitable giving
  • otherwise making a positive impact on the industry

The recipients will be honored during the Horticultural Industries Leadership Awards reception at Cultivate'17 in Columbus, Ohio, on Sunday, July 16, 2017.

Deadline for nominations: April 1, 2017
