HELENA–The Helena Beautification Board has announced the unveiling of the Helena Beautification Award. The new award will be given to residents within Helena that outshine all around based on exterior appearance.

Homes will be nominated each month by residents and voted upon by the Beautification Board. The criteria used to judge will be based on yard maintenance, design and landscape and overall curb appeal.

Each month, nominations will be accepted until the 25th day of the month with the winner being selected and notified at the first of the following month.

The winner of each month will be able to proudly display a yard sign for the month, have their picture and house published on the Helena Beautification website, Helena Beautiful Facebook page and in the local press.

To nominate a home to receive the Helena Beautification Award on May 1, go to Helenabeautiful.com/award.html and submit the address.

The Helena Beautification Board is an appointed board of the Helena City Council. The Board believes that people and places are profoundly connected and thriving communities are rooted in individual responsibility and action. They host a variety of opportunities for the community to come together and serve each year. Events are posted on the Helena Beautiful Facebook page and announced via Twitter at @TweetHomeHelena.
