Res­i­dents en­cour­aged to par­tic­i­pate in gar­den­ing com­pe­ti­tion

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FEATURES/COMUNITY -

The City of Char­lot­te­town, in part­ner­ship with Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom, is en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents to ap­ply or nom­i­nate en­trants for the an­nual Make Char­lot­te­town Bloom pro­gram.

The dead­line for Make Char­lot­te­town Bloom nom­i­na­tions or sub­mis­sions is Fri­day, July 17.

The pro­gram is de­signed to re­ward those who main­tain build­ings and land­scapes within city lim­its. Busi­nesses and res­i­dents can self-nom­i­nate or nom­i­nate some­one else.

En­tries are judged based on de­sign, va­ri­ety, colour, unique fea­tures and main­te­nance. The cat­e­gories are as fol­lows: com­mer­cial prop­er­ties; birds and the bees; flower gar­dens; win­dow boxes, planters; bas­kets; wa­ter wise prop­erty; make your bins beau­ti­ful; adopt a bar­rel and adopt a cor­ner.

In ad­di­tion, the Mayor’s Award will be pre­sented by Char­lot­te­town Mayor Clifford Lee to the prop­erty owner that demon­strates the best over­all im­prove­ment to their home or grounds.

First-place win­ners from the pre­vi­ous year are not el­i­gi­ble to en­ter that same cat­e­gory for a one-year pe­riod, but are el­i­gi­ble to en­ter other cat­e­gories.

Judg­ing will take place be­tween July 27 and Aug. 7. The re­sults will be shared at an awards cer­e­mony on Sept. 10.

Reg­is­tra­tion forms can be picked up at City Hall and will also be avail­able in The Guardian news­pa­per. A dig­i­tal copy of the en­try form is avail­able, along with the con­test rules at: www.char­lot­te­town.ca by click­ing on the Make Char­lot­te­town Bloom but­ton in the Quick Links menu.
