Lewes Wins America in Bloom
Lewes, DE was awarded the America in Bloom Outstanding Achievement Award.
This award recognizes an overall winner of excellence in each of the six judging criteria plus community involvement. Because Lewes had won in categories prior to 2015, we competed in America in Bloom’s “Circle of Champions.”
While there are more than 200 cities across the U.S. that compete for a wide variety of awards, only 13 cities are among the AIB’s Circle of Champions. Lewes volunteers spent hundreds of hours planting thousands of plants throughout the city to promote the beautification and maintenance of Historic Lewes, increase environmental awareness, teach children about planting, and showcase our exceptional floral displays. Because of the number of entries, the Circle of Champions Award was divided by city size and we won in the small city category.
