The Town of Qualicum Beach announced Tuesday the competition for the “Best Blooming Business Award” as part of its 2013 Communities in Bloom program.

“Just as many local residents take pride in their gardens and their home’s curb appeal, the idea of this award is to encourage decorated storefront displays, including window boxes, in our community,” said Town of Qualicum Beach Coun. Mary Brouilette, chair of the 2013 Select Committee for Communities in Bloom. “We hope to see originality and an innovative use of materials. The possibilities are endless!”

Judging for the Best Blooming Business Award will take place on July 5 by members of the Communities in Bloom Committee.

The competition is open to any business that holds a 2013 business license in the Town of Qualicum Beach.

Entry forms are available online at www.qualicumbeach.com and at the Town Hall office at #201-660 Primrose Street, Qualicum Beach.

Completed entry forms must be submitted no later than 4 p.m. on June 24. The 2013 Communities in Bloom theme is Strong Roots in our Heritage … New Leaves in our Future.

The national judges will be in Town from July 18 to 20.

Recognition to the winning business, along with the winner of the town staff’s Street Style award that recognizes curb appeal, will be given at the Volunteer Appreciation Event on July 18, 2013 at the Civic Centre.
