Culture On Your Block
Maryland Heights is proud to be a culturally diverse city, serving as a home for people from all walks of life and from all corners of the world. While we often like to celebrate this diversity through events like WorldFest or our Celebrate series, we want to turn the spotlight on our residents with our community program, Culture on Your Block!
This program accepts submissions from any Maryland Heights resident who is interested in sharing their cultural background and heritage with their fellow neighbors. Residents who submit will have the opportunity to be featured both in our bi-monthly newsletters in the Community Spotlight section and across our social media channels.You can access the form at marylandheights.com/cultureblock
I ♥ Maryland Heights Bumper Sticker Contest
Display your Maryland Heights spirit for a chance to win four free passes to the Community Center or Centene Ice Center! Follow these three easy steps to enter!
1.Grab a bumper sticker!
Did you get an “I ♥ Maryland Heights” bumper sticker at the Maryland Heights Night Out block parties? If you didn’t attend a block party or didn’t get a sticker, don’t worry! We have stickers at the Government Center front desk (11911 Dorsett Rd.) and Community Center Welcome Desk (2300 McKelvey Rd.). Pick up a sticker during normal business hours while supplies last.
The Government Center is open Monday – Friday, 8:30 – 5:00 p.m.
The Community Center is open Monday – Friday, 5:30 a.m. – 9:30 p.m., Saturday from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
2.Display your sticker!
Stick your bumper sticker where your city spirit can shine! Put it on your car, your kid’s wagon, your bike. Make sure the property you put it on is yours and visible.
3.Show us your sticker!
After you slap that sticker on, snap a photo of it being displayed and email us your photo, name and phone number at firstname.lastname@example.org. From there, you will be entered into a random drawing for a chance to win four free passes to the Maryland Heights Community Center or free public skating passes at the Centene Ice Center.
By submitting a photo, you are giving the City of Maryland Heights permission to include your photo in an online album and/or any printed publications. Any license plate or address information will be blurred to protect your privacy. No purchase necessary. The number of winners will be based on the total number of entries received.
