The Essex Communities in Bloom Committee is looking for entries for their Front Yard and Balcony Contest.  You can nominate  yourself, a friend, a neighbour, or any beautiful front garden or balcony you notice as you travel through the Town of Essex.

Submissions can be made by emailing a photo with information on the person or property and noting in the subject line: 2014 Front Yard and Balcony Contest. Emails can be sent to [email protected] Nomination forms are also available on the Town of Essex website, at Town Hall, and at Town of Essex recreation facilities.

“Communities in Bloom is a national program that the Town of Essex proudly participates in each year with its municipality-wide Front Yard and Balcony Contest,” says CIB Committee Co-Chair Ron Rogers.

“We encourage everyone to participate by maintaining and enhancing their properties, taking pride in their community, and nominating someone who deserves recognition for their efforts.”

Entries in the contest are judged based on five criteria: curb appeal, tidiness and maintenance, variation and balance, stimulation of senses, and originality. The Communities in Bloom Committee received 130 entries in last year’s contest and handed out 36 5-Bloom Awards at the annual awards event held in October.

The deadline for this year’s contest is Friday, July 25th. Judging begins on July 30th.

To find out more, visit the Town of Essex website  and search for Communities in Bloom.
