The City of Charlottetown is pleased to announce the winners of its annual Make Charlottetown Bloom program.

The local contest, in association with the national Communities in Bloom program, is designed to reward those who maintain buildings and landscapes within City limits. Businesses and residents can enter themselves or nominate someone else.

"The Make Charlottetown Bloom Awards are designed to recognize community members who have gone above and beyond to help enhance our neighbourhoods," said Charlottetown Mayor Clifford Lee. "On behalf of City Council and all of us at City Hall, thank you for the time and effort you’ve invested in your city."

Entries are judged based on design, variety, colour, unique features and maintenance. The categories are as follows: Commercial Properties; Birds and the Bees; Flower Gardens; Window Boxes, Planters, Hanging Baskets; Water Wise Property; Make Your Bins Beautiful; Adopt A Barrel; Adopt a Corner; and the Mayor’s Award.

The Mayor’s Award is presented by Charlottetown Mayor Clifford Lee to the property owner that demonstrates the best overall improvement to their home or grounds.

"When you look around the City of Charlottetown it’s obvious that the residents, businesses, and other organizations genuinely take pride in their properties," said Councillor Terry Bernard, Chair of the Public Works and Urban Beautification Committee. "I want to thank to the judges, volunteers, sponsors and Make Charlottetown Bloom committee for making this program and award ceremony possible each year so that we can formally recognize and congratulate those well-deserving, hardworking people."
