Full details below.

For Gardens in Newtown Borough and Township

Newtown is special in so many ways. One notable example: its beautiful gardens and parks! This spring as many were required to stay at home, residents took extra care with their lovely properties. Here is a chance to showcase those efforts while financially contributing to NHA’s preservation work in our community.

Take photos of your favorite gardens and enter them in the first-ever NHA 2020 Garden Photo Contest. Since distancing to protect our community’s well-being means we’re unable to enjoy the Annual Garden Walking Tour as a group, we look forward to seeing its typical splendor captured in your photos!

How to enter? Submit one form per photo entry. (Please only enter photos taken with 12 months of July 18, 2020). The online entry form is available below. Optionally, you can download and mail the form to:

Newtown Historic Association
P.O. Box 303
Newtown, PA 18940

Cost? There is a $5 per photo entry fee. There is no limit on the number of entries. Enter as many great photos as you like!
Payment method? Use your credit card or PayPal at the NHA website. Alternatively, make your check payable to Newtown Historic Association.
Deadline for submissions? All entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, July 18, 2020.
Is there a prize? Yes! NHA judges will award first, second, and third prizes to the top three photos. In addition, 12 photos will be selected for the inaugural edition of a Gardens of Newtown poster, available fall 2020.
