Race is on for most beautiful in Bowling Green


For the 13th consecutive year the judging results are in for the Beautiful Bowling Green Contest.
The judges said it was a very difficult competition. All residents and retail business within the city
limits have worked very hard this spring and the results show.
BBG Inc., sponsor of the Beautiful Bowling Green contest, divides the city into 10 areas.
Each year it has 22 volunteer judges who drive around a designated area.
There are two categories: Best Front Yard and Best Accent Planting.
There is a first, second and third place winner in each category. All winners are eligible for a plant
donated by North Branch Nursery.
All first place winners in the two categories will be judged again, with the top award recipients to be
announced at the awards ceremony Saturday at 11 a.m. at Wintergarden/St. John’s Nature Reserve.
The final winners will be picked for first place $100, second place $75, third place $50 and will receive
a gift certificate.
