ROD TALLIS AWARD
Like most professional bodies, the International Plant Propagator's Society recognizes outstanding achievement by the younger section of our industry. The IPPS does this through the Rod Tallis Youth Award which is presented annually to the most commendable achievement by a person over 18 years of age who is working or studying in horticulture.
The award is named after one of the Society's most respected members, Rod Tallis. Rod was an avid nurseryman with a passion for plant propagating, for the IPPS and for the youth of our industry. He was a mainstay in many of the early conferences and made significant contributions to Plant propagation in Australia before his sudden death in 1981.
The winner will have completed a research project, written an article or series of articles or developed a new process or product. They will then write up their work in a paper to be presented at the next IPPS conference.
The paper will be assessed on issues or clarity, originality and relevance to the industry. The achievements of the applicant to date will also be reviewed.
Elliott Akintola was the winner for 2023 at this years GEELONG CONFERENCE.
The winner for 2024 will be invited to the 52nd Annual IPPS Conference in BALLINA, NSW at the BALLINA RSL from Wednesday 22nd May to Saturday 25th May 2024.
They will have their airfare accommodation and conference registration paid for. They will also receive one year's membership to the IPPS and a commemorative plaque.
Many of the previous winners have gone onto establish very successful careers in horticulture around Australia. One of these winners will assist the successful applicant in preparing and delivering their paper.
If you are over 18 years of age and are involved in anything that may fit the above criteria then you should apply. If you know of anyone; friend, family member, employee or student that fits the above criteria then encourage them to apply.
