IPM 2017 Beautification Contest

We are excited to be delivering a contest involving rural and urban buildings as well as landscape competitions with an end result of renewed beautification to our lovely Huron County. This competition will encourage pride in our farms, our villages and our towns along with the shores of the West Coast of Ontario in Huron County. We have created a category for everyone to be involved — from building new structures or changing existing buildings and landscape to creating a new gate sign or updating flowerbeds. All improvements large or small will be considered as beautification. Let your imagination be your guide...creativity has no limits. The contest entry deadline was June 30 but we encourage all to join in and create beautification initiatives.

The Beautification Contest is proudly sponsored by Trillium Mutual Insurance Company.

4-H LogoA special 4-H Category has been created within the IPM 2017 Beautification Competition strictly for Huron County 4-H members. 4-H members are encouraged to make a beautification display, it can be located at the end of a laneway or gate entrance, on your porch or in your front yard, the only requirement is that it must be visible from the road. The display should incorporate 4-H, IPM 2017, and recognize that it’s Canada’s 150th Anniversary.

This 4-H category is sponsored by Dodds Century Farms.
