Gold Leaf Award

Harry J. Banker Gold Leaf Award

The Harry J. Banker Gold Leaf Award provides an opportunity for ISA chapters to recognize individuals at the local or regional level. The award is intended for individuals, organizations and communities for either outstanding Arbor Day activities or for outstanding landscape beautification activities as submitted by an ISA Chapter. This is an opportunity for ISA chapters to solicit entries to acknowledge worthy individuals, organizations or municipalities for projects which have had a significant impact upon a community or region, usually over a period of several years.

Submit a Nomination

Contact your local ISA Chapter to recommend someone for special recognition or extraordinary contribution to the profession or industry.
