Municipal parks and recreation departments, public works departments and non-profit agencies may enter the contest for a chance at winning a top-of-the-line Exmark commercial mower package valued at approximately $15,000, and a GreenCare for Communities green space improvement project. The makeover will take place in 2021.
Each nomination requires an essay and photos explaining why the community is deserving of a new mower and makeover to the designated park or green-space play area. The essay must explain how the prize will assist in maintaining a healthier and safer park, playing field or public green space for the community to enjoy.
