The Scott Medal and Award is given annually to an individual, organization, or corporate body who has made an outstanding national contribution to the science and art of gardening. The purpose of the award is to honor person/s who "promote a greater love of nature, make the nation more conscious of the beauty of the outdoors, develop a greater knowledge and love of plants and flowers, spread the gospel of better planting and designing, and arouse a wider interest in better planting and more beautiful gardens among all citizens."
