Pariticpating communities are visited by a two person judging team made up of qualified volunteers who will provide the community with a written evaluation and a bloom rating of one to five blooms (five being the highest ranking). This evaluation considers the accomplishments of the entire community (municipal, private, corporate and institutional sectors, and citizens). The community recieves their bloom rating at a provincial awards ceremony in the fall.
