[ARCHIVED] 2019 America in Bloom "Best Use of Social Media" Award and Community Vitality Recognition


The City of Wadsworth competed in the national America in Bloom (AIB) contest for the first time in 2019, won the "Best Use of Social Media" Award, and received special recognition for "Community Vitality" at the 2019 America in Bloom Symposium and Awards celebration in St. Charles, Illinois. 

America in Bloom is the only national awards program that sends specially trained judges to personally visit participating cities. Two AIB judges, Stephen Pategas and Laurie Waller spent two days in Wadsworth touring the community and meeting with city officials, residents, and volunteers. The City of Wadsworth, along with over 40 other communities across the nation, were evaluated against seven criteria: Overall Impression, Community Vitality, Environmental Efforts, Heritage Celebration, Urban Forestry, Landscaped Areas, and Flowers.
