Acorn Award

When you are out and about in Oakdale, are there properties that cause you to pause so you can take it all in? Maybe it's colorful flowers, maybe it's perfectly shaped greenery, maybe it's your own yard! Oakdale loves to recognize such properties by bestowing them with an Acorn Award --- and we need nominations!  

Nominate a Property

Nominate as many properties as you want, even your own, by June 10.  Nominated properties need to be visible from a public street.  Make an Acorn Award Nomination

The Acorn Award Committee reviews all nominations and selects a winning property in each category. Winning properties are recognized by the City Council, acknowledged on the City's social media, and mentioned in the Oakdale Update newsletter.  Winners also receive an award, a garden center gift card, and an Oakdale pin; plus the City will display an Acorn Award sign on winning properties for several weeks!
