SFMA & Project EverGreen Partner on Contest

Nominate your park, playing field or public green space for a chance to earn a free renovation and a professional mower package


SFMA in partnerships with its charity, The SAFE Foundation, Project EverGreen and Exmark Manufacturing, join forces for the third annual “Our Winning Green Space” contest. The contest runs through April 26 with the winner being announced in early May.

Municipal parks and recreation departments, public works departments and non-profit agencies can enter the contest to have a chance at winning a top-of-the-line Exmark commercial mower package including Lazer Z X-Series zero-turn and Commercial 30 walk-behind mowers – valued at approximately $15,000 – as well as a playing field or park renovation project.

The online submission process requires an essay and photos explaining why their city deserves the new equipment and renovated playing field, and how it will assist them in maintaining a healthier, safer area for kids to play. Submissions can be made at www.ProjectEverGreen.org.

Previous winners include:

  • 2017 – In Memory of Community Garden and the Warrendale Community Organization, Detroit, Michigan
  • 2018 – Parks & Recreation Department, Clinton, North Carolina

In January, SFMA partnered with Project Evergreen to renovate a field at Lindo Park in Phoenix a day in advance of the 30th Annual SFMA Conference and Exhibition. More than 100 SFMA members and community residents participated in the renovation.
