Going green on Great White Way.

The Broadway Mall Association--a not-for-profit organization that helps to care for the planted median malls that run along Broadway from 60th Street to 168th Street--announced winners in its Third Annual National Garden Design Competition that drew designers from eight states and Canada.

With invitations extended to accredited landscape architecture schools in the United States and Canada, as well as posted with the American Society of Landscape Architects, at the New York Botanical Gardens, the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and with the New York Horticultural Society, the competition received 45 submissions.

The first place prize; a composition of oakleaf hydrangea with ornamental grasses, 'Autumn Joy" sedum and cleome and yellow-twig dogwood, was designed Manhattan resident Denisha Williams. Williams, a project associate at City College Architectural Center, has a master's degree in Art History and returned to City University for a second degree and second career in Urban Design and Landscape Architecture Design.

Second place was won by Kelly J. Engelbracht from Washington State University mad Third Place was captured by a group of students from the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of RI.

"The jury for this competition is an incredible line-up of design professionals whose work I admire. I'm honored and awed that this group selected my design for the planting on Broadway," said winner Williams.

The mission of the association is to beautify and maintain the malls of Broadway to restore the public glory of New York City's oldest and most traveled thoroughfare, from Columbus Circle through Harlem to Washington Heights.
