* Due to budgetary reasons, participating communities from Labrador will be judged by a single team, Vince and Pat Burton.
Evaluation Dates for participating communities will be determined in late spring/early summer after the Judges Training Workshop.
- All participating communities MUST download this checklist indicating areas in which your community is currently addressing. This checklist should then be presented to Tidy Towns judges upon their arrival. If the checklist is not presented to judges then a community will be deducted points from their overall evaluation score.?
The purpose of this checklist is to help identify specific areas of importance Tidy Towns Judges will be looking for and ultimately the basis of your evaluation. In some cases the allocated time for an evaluation is simply not long enough to collect all pertinent information. Communities are encouraged to put together documentation; such as this checklist and present it to the judges allowing them to complete their evaluation with comprehensive knowledge of your town.?
