Greetings Fishy Friends!

 

 

New Hampshire Aquarium Society Annual Awards

The NHAS holds a variety of competitions and programs throughout the year and at the end of the year we celebrate our achievements at the Annual Banquet held every January.

 

The Aquarist of the Year is determined by the total number of points awarded to members based on attendance, participation in Bowl and Photo Shows, and contributions to the monthly auction.

 

The President's Award is given by the President to the person who has best served the club in numerous ways throughout the year.

 

The Breeder's Award Program (BAP) recognizes efforts by our members to breed new species. The sale of the fry within the club is an important aspect of the program.

 

The Horticultural Award Program (HAP) recognizes efforts in aquatic plant propagation. It runs in a manner similar to the BAP.

 

The club holds a Bowl Show at every monthly meeting. Points are awarded and prizes are given at the end of the year. In addition, the Best-of-the-Best competition is held every June to select the winner from all first-place finishers throughout the previous 12 months.

 

The club also holds a Photo Show at every monthly meeting. Awards are similar to the Bowl Show.
