City of Edmonton Neighbourhood Services will be continuing the Neighbourhood Challenge into the spring, summer and fall. We are challenging you to keep exploring your neighbourhood and safely connecting with those around you while maintaining physical distance and adhering to all public health measures

A new challenge will be posted on the first day of each month at edmonton.ca, June to October 2021. 

There are several ways to enter:

  • Tag us using #GetNeighbouring in a photo on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter (make sure your post is public)

  • Fill out a online entry form with your photo and/or story

You will be entered into a random prize draw for each tag or form completed. Multiple entries accepted!

For our June challenge, we challenge you to spend more time outside! Take a walk, go for a bike ride, work in the garden, bird watch or enjoy your yard. Post a picture and tell us who or what you discover when spending time outside in your neighbourhood. Make sure to adhere to all public health measures while connecting with others. If you prefer to stay in, take a picture of what you do to stay healthy while at home. 

To be entered into our monthly prize draw, share your stories or photos on social media using #GetNeighbouring or complete this online entry form. Multiple entries accepted. (Tip: Make sure your post is public, so we can see it).
