Sullivan Renaissance seminar to help projects prepare

May 25, 2006


[LIBERTY] – Sullivan Renaissance is holding a seminar on “How to Present Your Project to the Judges” on Wednesday, June 7, 2006 at 7:00 p.m. in the CVI Building in Liberty.


The presentation will consist of a panel moderated by program coordinator Glenn Pontier and include a multi-year judge, a representative of a long-time participating community, a member of the steering committee and a planner from the Sullivan County Division of Planning and Community Development. 


The seminar focuses on how Renaissance community projects can best prepare for the judging that will take place on August 11 and 12.  Groups meet with the panel of judges on Friday evening to explain their efforts; the judges visit each community on Saturday to see the work accomplished.  Seminar participants will also review the guidelines and criteria for judging, discuss best practices from previous years, and receive presentation tips. 


The teams of judges from outside Sullivan County select winners in three project categories.  All participants that finish will receive completion grants.  Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Monday, August 14. 


Communities have been hard at work on 43 projects since initial grants were awarded in March.  Projects are judged for aesthetic improvement, collaboration, youth involvement, permanence and an ability to be maintained.


The seminar is sponsored by Sullivan Renaissance, The Sullivan County Division of Planning and Community Development, and The Catskill Center for Conservation and Development.


Sullivan Renaissance provides communities with seed money to compete in a beautification contest, while building a sense of pride and spirit in the community.  Sullivan Renaissance is a program of the Beaverkill Foundation with support from the Gerry Foundation. 


Pre-registration is requested.  For more information, call 845-295-2445.
