PHNA is organizing contest to recognize those within the community that take pride in the appearance of their yard and do their part to beautify our neighborhood. The Beautiful Curb Appeal Contest will run from the first full week in March to the last full week in May with winner selected each week. Let’s all make this new contest a big success and recognize those residents that make Peter Howell and Tucson beautiful!
To nominate a yard for the Beautiful Curb Appeal Contest: You can email PHNA board at firstname.lastname@example.org. Residents may nominate their own yard or others. Each week, a member of Yard of the Week Committee, judges nominated yards on Sunday evening and Monday morning when most yards look their best after the weekends work. Nominated yards are judged on the basis of the landscaping design, overall neatness and appearance, use of color and effort required. All single family residences within the Peter Howell Neighborhood are eligible for the contest. To encourage more participation and recognize more homes within the community, all recipients of the Beautiful Curb Appeal prize must wait two year before receiving the award again. All recipients of the Beautiful Curb Appeal Contest will have an Award Sign placed in their yard. Award signs are generously donated by Patricia Martin with Tierra Antigua Realty. Dave Carter Studio will provide professional photograph of the award recipients yard which will be featured on our website and Arizona Daily Star at end.

At the end of our celebration neighbors will be welcome to tour around our neighborhood and see the beautiful curb appeal yards with provided location map.
Sometimes the most beautiful yards go unrewarded because no one took a moment to nominate. So next time when you running, walking or biking please notice your surrounding, let us know the best or the one that needs attention. PHNA have sources to help elderly neighbors in needs with overgrown yard. Let’s all make this new contest a big success and recognize those residents that make Peter Howell Beautiful. PHNA would also like to thank all of our sponsors and Curb Appeal committee.
