COWS to Again Sponsor Beautiful Yard Contest

Published by admin on April 30th, 2012 - in Local Fun

The Community Organization Working for Stewardson has announced that it will again sponsor The Beautiful Yard of the Month Award for all Stewardson residents. Many residents have worked hard to get their yards in top condition, to improve their landscaping, and to help in the overall beautification of Stewardson. The Housing and Beautification Action Team of C.O.W.S. wants to recognize these beautiful yards.

There will be 6 Judge’s Choice Awards – one each for May, June, July, August, and September, as well as the Most Patriotic Yard to be judged in late June in conjunction with the Stewardson 4th of July celebration. Each month’s award will be judged the last weekend of the month prior to the Award month. For example, the June Beautiful Yard of the Month will be judged by impartial judges the last weekend of May.

Each winner will receive a sign to place in their yard for all to see and recognition on and in local media.

All Stewardson residents are encouraged to participate!
