Spring Meadow Receives GWA Awards

Spring Meadow Nursery was recently awarded two Silver Medals of Achievement from the Association for Garden Communicators (GWA) 2018 Media Awards

The GWA Media Awards program recognizes outstanding writing, photography, graphic design and illustration for books, newspaper stories, magazine articles and other gardening-focused works. The 2018 award competition judges reviewed more than 260 entries from individuals and companies in garden communications.

Recipients of the Silver Medal of Achievement represent the top winners in each competition category and go on to compete for best of group Gold Medals of Achievement, which will be awarded at the GWA conference in Chicago in August.

Marketing specialist/horticulturist Stacey Hirvela earned the Silver Medal of Achievement for her work on issue #6 of “Gardening Simplified,” a Spring Meadow Nursery publication. The 100-page reference guide delivers gardening information, colorful photos and planting ideas. Published every two years, the company distributes approximately 155,000 copies to consumers, landscapers, and garden centers through mailings, conferences, and special events.

A second Silver Medal of Achievement was earned for “A New Vision for Roses,” a brochure created by Spring Meadow Nursery marketing specialists Stacey Hirvela and Shannon Downey. The booklet is an in-depth look at the Proven Winners ColorChoice line of shrub roses with plant descriptions, breeder information, testimonials and large, full-color photography.
