2020 District IX Ongoing Civic Project Award   Due Nov. 1

 

District IX will again offer for 2020 the Ongoing Civic Project Award, which seeks to recognize and reward our district garden clubs for their continued hard work on projects in their communities. This is a broad category and could encompass many kinds of Civic Projects, from landscape projects to youth and therapy gardens to front yard beautification recognition. 

 

Winning entries in each membership division* will receive a $50 prize. Winners are announced at the March 10, 2020, District IX annual meeting. Any club that won the previous year will not qualify for a prize this year.

 

When preparing the 3-page Award Application Form, be sure to emphasize the impact of your project on your community and what makes it unique. Don’t forget to attach the District IX Award coversheet to your 3 pages. 

 

Your application should describe the location of project, give a brief history and benefit to the community, include involvement of any outside agencies and persons and what members do as part of the project (list chair/s and number of members participating). Include financial costs, a landscape plan if applicable (does not need to be professionally drawn), overall photos of the project and current publicity or recognition.

 

And don’t forget that Nov. 1 is the deadline for many state awards. Did you know that your entry for the District IX Ongoing Civic Project Award is also suitable for the GCI #23 Civic Concern Award, which is sponsored and funded by District IX? Duplicate your 3-page entry, fill out the state coversheet and submit it to the state chairman. For more information on state awards, see https://www.gardenclubsofillinois.org/awards.

 

I look forward to your entries.
