Good as Gold Contest

Do you like to conserve water? Do you like a friendly competition? If you answered yes to either of these questions, check out our Good as Gold Contest!

The City of Chilliwack gets the majority of its drinking water from the Sardis-Vedder Aquifer. Did you know that all the water that enters your home is drinking water? We need to conserve this water so we can use it for non-discretionary purposes. For example, to drink, cook, bathe, flush our toilets, do laundry, and more.

Take Part in the Contest

Conserve water by letting your lawn go dormant and golden for the summer, and you could win a prize! All golden lawns and alternatives like vegetable gardens or rock gardens are eligible.

How to enter:

  • Take a picture of your maintained (kept and mowed), but not watered lawn.
  • Send the picture to [email protected] to enter.
  • Send in pictures of your vegetable garden, rock gardens or rain barrel for bonus entries.

The contest runs from May 1 – October 15, 2024. Photos must be taken during this time. The last day to submit photos to enter the contest is October 15. We will draw winners by November 8, 2024 and contact them by email.  


Anyone located within the City of Chilliwack can take part and send in pictures of their golden, kept and mowed lawn. Winners may need to provide their address to confirm they live in Chilliwack.


The prizes will be Visa gift cards. There will be a first, second and third place winner.

  • First place prize: $150
  • Second place prize: $100
  • Third place prize: $50
