The Town of Stettler has competed in the National Communities in Bloom competition since 2008, achieving a 5 Bloom rating (the highest) each year. In 2011, Stettler was chosen as the winner in their population category, making them the National Champion for the 3001-7500 population category.
In 2012, Stettler competed in the Small category of the International Challenge of the National Communities in Bloom competition (there were 12 communities from across the world) and achieved 5 Blooms again. The judges indicated that marking is harder in this competition; Stettler did not decrease in their evaluation scores from previous years; a significant accomplishment.
Since 2010, Stettler has been applying for Outstanding Achievement Awards in various evaluated categories, where each entrant competes against ALL other entrants in each category. In 2010, Stettler was awarded an Outstanding Achievement Award for the Landscape category. In 2011, Stettler was awarded an Outstanding Achievement Award for the Environmental Action category and in 2012, Stettler received the Outstanding Achievement Award for the Landscape category and was a finalist for Environmental Action.
In 2014, the Town of Stettler received a 5 bloom rating and a special mention for Project: Walk 'n' Roll during the National Symposium and Awards Ceremonies in Charlottetown, PEI. Stettler also received an Outstanding Achievement Award for the Natura Tidiness Award. The Town of Stettler participated in the International Challenge (Small) category along with Castlegar BC, Fogo NL, Killarney-Turtle Mountain MB, Jasper AB, Moynalty Village Ireland, and Trail BC.
Keeping our town beautiful requires the involvement of all citizens. Please give some thought to what you or an organization you belong to might do, not just to give Stettler an edge in the competition but to make it an even better place to live. If you have any ideas or projects you would like to see implemented and would like to discuss these with the Heartland Beautification Committee, please call the Town Office at 403-742-8305 and ask for the Beautification Committee contact.
