The competition allows community heritage groups to promote their heritage projects, fundraise and raise monies.
The 25 town projects are divided into two categories: Big projects (which have a budget of $60,000 or more) and small projects (which have a budget of under $60,000).
There is $220,000 worth of prizes to be won in each category, with national and regional prizes to be won in each category as well.
The Union Art Project aims to redevelop a row house duplex on Main Street into a multi-purpose space for community art.
Voting opened today, June 15. Every dollar donated to a project also counts as a vote.
