2017 Forest In Bloom Awards

Leave This Blank:

The Forest In Bloom Awards are presented annually to Oak Forest residents, businesses and organizations who take the extra steps necessary to beautify their homes and properties through exceptional landscaping. If you notice a home or business where pride of ownership really shines through, be sure to submit an application.

All residents or business owners are eligible to nominate themselves or another home, business or organization. If you do not know the name of the homeowner, be sure to get the correct address in order to complete the application form.

The selection committee is comprised of seven volunteer judges. In order to remain impartial, judges do not live in the wards they are critiquing. Also, a new judging panel is chosen each year.

Judging takes place the first two weeks of July. Backyards are not included in the judging process. Entries are ranked in these categories (based on a 25-point scale): visual impact of landscape design; variety of flowers and plants; and maintenance of landscape design.

In order to be considered by the judges, an application must be submitted on behalf of a home or property. Applications are due by July 1. Late applications will not be accepted.

Award signs will be distributed the first and second week in August. Questions? Call 708-687-4050 or email cityofoakforest@oak-forest.org.
