Four industry organizations have come together for the fourth consecutive year to present the 2020 “Our Winning Green Space Contest.” In addition to the STMA, the partnership consists of The Foundation for Safer Athletic Fields for Everyone (SAFE), Project EverGreen and Exmark Manufacturing.
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. Submissions may be entered at ProjectEverGreen until November 30, 2020.
