Rose Parade Awards 2018: Every year, after the Rose Parade takes place, awards and trophies are presented to these flower-decorated floats in a variety of categories and specifications.
There are around twenty three or twenty four awards presented each year.
A three-member judging panel, composed of civic and floral industry leaders, is appointed by the Tournament of Roses Judging Committee to evaluate the floats within a range of classifications.
Scores are given to all floats for all award categories based on criteria such as creative design, floral craftsmanship, artistic merit, computerized animation, thematic interpretation, floral and color presentation, and dramatic impact.
The 129th annual Rose Parade took place on January 1, 2018. I am sure you all might be eager to know the names of Winners of Rose Parade 2018 Awards….
