The American Botanical Council’s 16th Annual Celebration and Botanical Excellence Awards will stream live on Tuesday, May 25, at 5pm EDT on ABC’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.

The one-hour, free-to-attend online program is open to consumers and those in industry, academia, research, media, and government and is free to attend.

ABC’s first Botanical Excellence Awards were given in 2006. Recipients are chosen based on their contributions to the herbal and botanical community during the previous year.

“ABC has always been a science organization, and most of our awards reflect ABC’s scientific research orientation,”​ said ABC Founder and Executive Director Mark Blumenthal.

“Despite the fact that we can chose only a few people for our awards each year, ABC’s awards process intends to honor all those engaged in scientific and clinical research on herbs, medicinal plants, phytomedicines, essential oils, medicinal fungi, and related natural ingredients with therapeutic benefits.”

According to Stefan Gafner, PhD, ABC Chief Science Officer, “It is an encouraging sign that our list of award contenders grows longer every year, which means that an increasing number of people and organizations are making substantial contributions of time, energy, and resources to further our knowledge of the efficacy and safety of medicinal plants. I look forward to honoring this year’s awardees at the Celebration.”

ABC six Botanical Excellence Awards include:

ABC James A. Duke Excellence in Botanical Literature Award
ABC Norman R. Farnsworth Excellence in Botanical Research Award
ABC Varro E. Tyler Commercial Investment in Phytomedicinal Research Award
ABC Fredi Kronenberg Excellence in Research and Education in Botanicals for Women’s Health Award
