We believe that the Grow Smart Awards is one of our best tools to help inform and educate on the importance of smart growth in Idaho. To that end, we want to increase capacity so that we can grow the program and honor even more of the deserving projects in Idaho.
Please consider making a donation to Idaho Smart Growth today to help us increase the impact of this important program.
The 11th annual Grow Smart Awards was a great success! We had an excellent turnout at the Owyhee to celebrate award winning projects from Sandpoint, Idaho Falls, Garden City, and Boise.
