Bringing Municipal Engagement Online with a Garden Contest
Spring has arrived. The birds are singing; the flowers are blooming and the websites are launching. With our recent Township of Esquimalt website launch comes the arrival of their annual Bloomin’ Beautiful contest. This year eligible contestants are asked to submit their treasured garden photos online.
Upanup has developed a web-based form to make the entry process easy for submitters. Not only has this contest been given a new online look, it also includes a sleek public voting system and a super efficient review process for the internal judging.
We encourage any eligible residents to participate by submitting photos of your garden online. Entries will be accepted until May 24. Public voting for the People Choice award will be held between June 1 and June 10. Check the Township of Esquimalt’s website to view all the finalists in the six categories and vote on your favourite for People’s Choice garden.
