Spring is time to ‘spruce up’ your porch and enter the Sayre Front Porch Project contest


The American front porch is a unique architectural feature designed to enhance our homes and neighborhoods. We are lucky that our Valley has so many homes graced with beautiful porches. Join us in the SAYRE FRONT PORCH PROJECT movement.

1. Spruce Up Your Front Porch
– Take time to create a welcoming and useful space for your family to enjoy. It’s amazing what small changes can do to enhance curb appeal and show pride in your home. From using items you already own in a new and creative way, to simply cleaning or freshening up paint, it doesn’t take much to join the movement. Be sure to snap ‘before’ photos to participate in step #2.

2. Enter the Contest
-Between April 22 to June 1, send (3) before and after photos of your front ‘spruce up’ to [email protected] along with a few sentences about your project and what you love about your space.

This contest is open to homeowners within the Borough of Sayre & South Waverly. Limited to front porches only and must reflect changes that do not require a permit. A panel of judges will select (3) winners in the Sayre Borough who most exemplify the goals of this initiative. Extra consideration will be given to those who’ve made the biggest changes to their spaces, especially in creative ways.

The winners will have made simple changes (cleaning, paint, added plants/furnishings, etc.) that have made an impact on the curb appeal of their home and improved the quality of their life.

3. Prizes – All three top winners will receive:

o Prize basket including gift certificates to local businesses.
o Professional photo shoot on your new front porch with C Rich Photography.
o A one year subscription to a magazine, either This Old House or Veranda (winners’ choice).
o A plaque they can display on their porch recognizing their achievement.
