PSOS 2013 Show Winners
This year was a grand show! The 2013 PSOS show and sale was well attended on both days. Crowds came bearing cultural questions and cameras to take photos. Visitors and members bought every orchid of the 340 that were offered for sale.
The top show winner was grown by Dewey Houser, who took home the Best of Show with his beautiful Paphiopedilum.
There were 17 Prairie State Orchid Society members who entered plants for judging. A total of 139 plants were judged.
But most of all, congratulations and thanks to the many officers and members of the society for their hard work in bringing all of the facets of the event together.

2012 Cultural Award
The 2013 Cultural Award was given to Ken & Leatha Schaper for their outstanding showing of excellence in growing so many award winning orchids. Ken & Letha make a trip of 250 miles to and from each meeting. Congratulations for your outstanding work and your contributions to our society.
Best of Show Award
The 2013 Best of Show award went to Dewey Houser for his Paphiopedilum orchid of rothschildianum x praestans. Not a stranger to the members of the society, Dewey provides comments on members "show & tell plants" at each meeting in the final portion of the meeting known as "The Dewey & Tom" show. Another great job Dewey!
