About the Awards Process

All residents or business owners were eligible to nominate themselves or another home, business or organization.

A nominee must earn at least 25 points to receive a Forest In Bloom Award.  When awarding points, judges considered the visual appeal of the front yard landscaping; the maintenance of lawn, bushes, shrubs, and flower beds; and the use of accessories (gazing balls, fountains, statues, etc.). Back yards were not considered as part of the award selection. 

The selection committee is comprised of seven judges – all volunteers – one for each ward.  In order to remain impartial, judges do not live in the wards they are critiquing.  A new judging panel is chosen each year.
