AOS sent me the description for the Educational Certificate (91pt).

A two-part exhibit consisting of a 6 foot by 4 foot table top realistically depicting a forest bog environment including noteworthy specimens of Cypripedium reginae, Cypripedium parviflorum, Platanthera ciliaris, Platanthera blephariglottis, Calopogon tuberosus and Galearis spectabilis; environment supplemented with numerous Sarracenia, Drosera, and Dionaea specimens surrounding a small body of water artistically decorated with various mosses, ferns, branches, dry leaves and pine needles illuminated from above; backdrop displays impressive photography, descriptions and maps of habitats and locales; both table top and backdrop beautifully positioned in such a way as to invite visitors to access from 3 sides of exhibit and to read and photograph educational information. Commended by judges for highly realistic staging of seldom-seen, difficult-to-grow species.

Apparently one judge scored it 100, the only time said judge has ever done so in 40 years of judging.
