Our Contests

Join us throughout the season in one, or several, of our annual contests! In the Spring, come by and collect some sunflower seeds to participate in our annual Sunflower Growing Contest, open to kids of all ages! In June, nominate your favourite front yards in the city of Spruce Grove and Town of Stony Plain in our Best Yards Contest, “Communities That Grow”. Or follow us social media to upload your best plant pics in one of the many photo contests we hold throughout the year! Each contest we hold is to encourage local participation in making our community beautiful!
