The deadline to register for the 2009 America in Bloom (AIB) contest is fast approaching: Feb. 28. Don’t miss the chance to beautify your community and nurture pride and awareness among its citizens.
America in Bloom is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting nationwide beautification programs and personal and community involvement through the use of flowers, plants, trees, and other environmental and lifestyle enhancements.
The organization provides educational programs, resources and the challenge of a friendly competition between participating communities across the country. Along the way, the program strives to help cities and towns plant pride in their communities, beautify a city, pool resources to achieve a common goal, and increase awareness of litter, graffiti and other issues that detract from a city’s appearance and reputation.
