Deadline for America in Bloom Cities Nears
The deadline for communities to register to participate in America in Bloom’s 2014 program is Feb. 28, 2014.
The program honors efforts for livability in communities of all types. Participants are evaluated on their efforts in horticulture, heritage, and environment across residential, commercial, and municipal sectors. Community involvement is also considered.
Based on successful models in Europe and Canada, America in Bloom is now in its thirteenth year. The program has had more than 200 participants from 40 states, touching more than 20 million lives.
It is the only program of its kind that sends a team of two specially trained judges who spend time in participating locations providing on-site coaching and mentoring, followed by a written evaluation which is sent after the awards program in the fall.
Eligible participants include towns, cities, townships, and even neighborhoods of large cities. In addition, business districts, college and university campuses, and military installations are all eligible to participate in this prestigious awards program.
