HUNTINGTON (AP) — The city of Huntington has fallen short in its bid to win a national competition that focuses on beautification.

The Herald-Dispatch reports the America in Bloom competition held an awards ceremony Saturday night in Orlando, Fla. Holland, Mich., won first prize in the nonprofit group's 30,000 to 50,000 population category.

Other cities entered in the category were Winter Garden, Fla.; and DeKalb, Ill.

The competition's judges visited Huntington for two days in July. Six criteria were used: floral displays, landscaped areas, urban forestry, environmental efforts, heritage preservation and overall impression.
