Garland to Host Neighborhood Story Contest

Every neighbor, every neighborhood has a story. We want to hear your neighborhood story! As part of the 10th Annual Neighborhood Summit Celebration, the City of Garland will host a Neighborhood Story Contest.

Stories may be as fun and delightful as a Dr. Seuss book, traditional and cherished like a Dickens novel, or somewhere in between. The City of Garland invites neighborhood groups and individuals to share stories through writing, interviews or photography. First and second place awards will be granted for individual and organization submissions.

Mail or hand-deliver Neighborhood Story submissions by 5 p.m. Aug. 31 to:
City of Garland
Public & Media Affairs
200 N. Fifth St.
Garland, TX 75040

Winners will be chosen from the following story categories:
• Most Inspiring Project
• Best Community Response to a Neighborhood Challenge
• Best Neighbor Appreciation Story

Prizes include Emergency Preparedness Kits, 6-month supply of Blue Bell Ice Cream, dinner for two at the Branding Iron Restaurant with a round of golf at Firewheel Golf Park—and the grand prize—matching funds for a neighborhood vitality project.

Share the great experiences happening in every neighborhood in Garland. For more information, call 972-205-3864 or email fconner@garlandtx.gov.
