The aim of the contest is to instill civic pride in the individual citizens and thus improve the appearance of the city.
The competition is tough, so it will take the whole community to get involved, club officials said.
Eunice will be in the Category E, population 11,001 to 15,000.
The last time Eunice entered the contest was 1994. The last time the city won it was in 1986.
Cities are judged by specified rules in accordance to the cleanest city score sheet scale of points. Special attention should be given to the landscaping and the overall litter- free, clean appearance. Attention should also be given to make sure no weeds or tall grass is growing along school grounds fences.
Vacant lots should be mowed at least 10 feet from the street or highway. Vacant lots must be litter-free. Abandoned cars are one of the worst litter problems.
Much preparation will be required to be ready for the competition.
Mayor Bob Morris said he is confident in the citizens of Eunice and he has authorized the city of Eunice to pay the entry fee. He is the one who contacted the garden club and helped to get organized and ready for the competition.
District judging will take place between the last week of March and the first week in April.
