Each property nominated is photographed from the front. If there are indoor sustainable features and/or special features in the back or side yard, please let us know, so that arrangements can be made to photograph those areas, as well. We also use photographs that show the condition of a property before improvements are made for transformation nominees.

Honoring the Winners

A committee narrows the nominees and helps plan and host the awards ceremony in September. The ceremony includes a presentation of photographs of winners’ homes or businesses. Plaques and certificates will be presented to winners. Please take the time to view the 
Evergreen Award Scripts and also photos of winners.
