    Re: prize/award for the best garden

    They are both appropriate. The only way to know which one is correct in the context you want to use it in would be to know whether the people who decide on the winner refer to what they win as a prize or an award.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
