Annually, SPRA looks for energetic individuals interested in contributing their expertise to the Communities in Bloom program. Judges are needed to visit communities across Saskatchewan. Their role is to assist in acknowledging communities' participation in initiatives involving heritage preservation, environmental awareness, tidiness, community involvement, floral displays, turf and open space management, landscaping, and urban forestry.
Interested participants are provided with an orientation related to the evaluation criteria and have the opportunity to visit some of Saskatchewan's most diverse and exciting communities.
This year's provincial judges are:
Arlene Janzen - White City, SK
