PARKSIDE - A grand prize of $1,000 is being offered to the winner of a contest to help make Parkside a more beautiful place.

The Parkside Prize will go to the resident who comes up with the best design to improve Parkside Avenue, specifically near Ocean Avenue.

Organizers point to the peeling paint at the subway station, the drains filled with garbage and deteriorating storefronts as the reasons behind the project and prize money.  They say the judging panel will be made up of residents, business owners and elected officials.

The deadline to register for the Parkside Prize contest is Dec. 1 and entries must be submitted by Dec. 15.
