Yard of Excellence

The Yard of Excellence Awards

There are two awards given out each year, on for best front yard and one for best back yard.  An article in the June newsletter asks neighbors to nominate yards they think should be recognized for Yard of Excellence.  The awards are open to both members and non-members of LDWNA.  You can nominate front, back, or both front and back yards.
After nominations are closed, pictures of the yards are taken and shared with the Board. Winners are determined by voting by the LDWNA Board.

After the winner is determined, the winning yard gets to have the Yard of Excellence sign (one for front another sign for back) in their yard for the summer.
