Re: SPU: Nies award


From: Mike Lowe <mlowe@worldiris.com>

Greg asks... Does anyone have a list of these winners?

Spuris C.L. pp 5-1,5-2,5-3       A.I.S. SPURIA AWARDS

In 1993 the American Iris Society revised its award system to provide for
two new categories: the Eric Nies Medal and the Award of Merit. The award
steps for introduced spurias are as follows:

HONORABLE MENTION - an iris becomes eligible for the HM three years after
introduction.  This is a change from the old system where an iris became
eligible after two years.

AWARD OF MERIT - an iris becomes eligible for the AM two years after
receiving the HM. The previous category of NIES AWARD was considered to be
"AM equivalent".

ERIC NIES MEDAL - limited to spurias that have been awarded an AM during
the previous three years. Only two spurias have received this award to
date: BETTY COOPER in 1993 and SON OF SUN in 1994.

DYKES MEMORIAL AWARD - spurias which have been awarded the
Eric Nies Medal are eligible for this top award of the A.I.S.
To date no spuria has received this award.
