Each year, the Master Gardener Advisory Committee recognizes impactful and outstanding contributions by groups of Iowa Master Gardeners by presenting Search for Excellence (SFE) awards. Multiple awards in several categories may be given. If your local Master Gardener group has projects that are making a difference in your community, consider nominating them for one of these awards. Share your story of how the projects developed and what impacts they have had by submitting applications for the SFE Awards by March 15, 2017.
