The village is divided into 33 sectors or neighborhoods and the members break up into teams to go through each sector and pick up to ten properties for consideration. Of those ten properties selected, they pick one as deserving the top prize or Blue Ribbon Award. The next four highest scored properties in that sector receive recognition in the White and Red Ribbon Award categories, and the remaining selections for that area receive an Honorable Mention.
Each August, an awards picnic is held for the Blue Ribbon Award winners where they receive a certificate of recognition and a yard plaque. White and Red Ribbon Award winners are mailed a certificate of recognition, while Honorable Mention Award winners receive a letter stating their accomplishment.
