Most Beautiful Contest

The Partners In Bloom Most Beautiful Contest offers opportunities for West Kelowna and Westbank First Nation residents and businesses to demonstrate their community pride and commitment to the enviornment by putting their gardening and landscaping skills to the test.

Entry is free and winners receive a keepsake.

Community involvement is a key criteria area in our Partners in Bloom entry and we want to show the national judges our civic pride. Let’s make our communities the best bloomin’ ones out there!

Please stay tuned for information on next year's contest and information on how to nominate a resident or business in our competition.
