Good luck to everyone!

Enjoy our summer heat, and happy gardening! 

To recap, here are the contest details:

How it works: For each event, members are asked to submit a photo (does not have to be a recent photo, but has to be one you took of your creation) of their favourite or most representative example of the subject from your garden, along with a brief written explanation as to why you are making the nomination. There will be a template on the Forum that you will use to submit your entries. Here is an example of an entry from a similar contest, though it is longer and more detailed than what we are looking for (if the register page appears, click on the “I’ll do it later” tab to see the full article.)

Members will have one week to submit their entries (entries will only be accepted during the first week of each event). Members may enter as often as they wish. The second week will be for all members to vote on each entry to determine a winner and a runner-up, based on the photo and the write up. Members vote on the Forum site using the “heart” button found at the bottom of each entry.

Prizes: Winners of each event will receive a $50 gift certificate from a local nursery. The runner-up of each event will receive a $25 gift certificate from a local nursery. In the event of a tie, a non-participating Forum team member will make the final decision.

All CVHS members, including Board and Forum moderators are encouraged to participate!
