Nominations must be in by Tuesday, Aug. 9 for the Yard of the Summer contest organized by the North Platte Bulletin and Keep North Platte and Lincoln County Beautiful.

This years’ prize sponsors are North Platte Hardware Do It Center and REMAX by Koby Rickertsen.

You have time to get things perfect in your yard and/or business: Entries will be judged Friday-Sunday, Aug. 12-14.

The nomination deadline is 4 p.m. Aug. 9.

Anyone can nominate a home or business — it can be your own. Submit the name of owner, address, brief description of the yard, a photo (if possible), and any directions that might help locate the property.

The winners of the 2021 competition are not eligible this year. 

Send in the nominations one of these ways:

  • Email:
  • Phone: 308-534-8100 – leave a message with the information.
  • Facebook Message:  Keep North Platte and Lincoln County Beautiful or the North Platte Bulletin.

Winners will be selected in each of North Platte’s 4 city wards as well as one business within Lincoln County. Prize money will be awarded to the top winners. Color photos of the homes and business will be published in the Bulletin.

Judging will be based on curb appeal, balance and color, creativity, sustainability and maintenance.

It’s important to get your nomination in, because only the homes and business that are nominated will be judged. One nomination is enough — the judges will decide the winners.

Good luck and may the best yard win!
