Creativity is an original concept, non-traditional, dramatic and exciting
in choice of components, or in the organization of the design
elements, within the principles of design. The exhibitor has creative
freedom and is not bound by rules, styles and codes. (Therefore, changing the shape or form of live plant material by cutting, bending,
bunching, rolling or wiring is permitted.)  Distinction is marked superiority in all respects.  Expression is personalized organization of design elements to create
or interpret a mood or idea.
