Time to apply for a Monarch Award

      Comments Off on Time to apply for a Monarch Award

Did you know that the application deadline is always at midnight on the day of summer solstice? This year (2022) that’s Tuesday June 21. It’s the longest day of the year– lots of daylight to take photos of your garden, lots of time to get your questionnaire answers just right!
If you’ve applied for a Monarch Award in the past and not “won”, or if you’ve received a Caterpillar-level award, you’re encouraged to apply again.
If your garden is short-listed and receives a visit from the judging team, it’s a great opportunity to get some expert advice and feedback on your good work. There are judges, but it’s not a contest. Any gardens that meet the criteria get an award. It free and easy to apply. For more information, visit www.monarchawardshamilton.org
