An Award of Distinction

We won! 

Each year our community honors the strawberry industry by holding a Strawberry Festival. It draws visitors worldwide. The festival was held this year March 3 – 13.

For the first time, the Florida Strawberry Growers Association won an award from the Festival. We were presented with the Award of Distinction. I have to say our display was the best ever. Expect to see come publicity photos show casing our booth in upcoming Festival promotions.

The Florida Strawberry Growers Association awarded four Ambassador Scholarship winners this year to four high school seniors. Each of these seniors won a $1,000 scholarship! Each and every years, our Ambassadors travel to Florida Strawberry events to help us promote Florida strawberries.
