    Lee and Pat Howell, whose home is in the Northwest neighborhood, won the Marian Krell Award in 2012, the top honor in the City of Everett's annual Monte Cristo Awards.

EVERETT -- Nominations are being sought for the 19th annual Monte Cristo Awards given to property owners who have shown extensive pride in their property.
The awards honor homes and businesses in the city limits for their beauty and attractiveness. Anyone can nominate a property through the deadline of June 1.
Awards are given in three categories: Rejuvenation and Transformation, Pride of the Neighborhood, and Neighborhood Friendly Business. Award recipients receive a Monte Cristo Award plaque for placement on the exterior of their home or business. The Everett Council of Neighborhoods and the City of Everett Office of Neighborhoods sponsor the awards.
The selection committee is made up of representatives of the Council of Neighborhoods, community volunteers and city staff members.
Each year, previous Monte Cristo Award winners are evaluated for the Marian Krell Award in honor of the late city councilwoman who was a longtime neighborhood advocate active in issues involving the arts in Snohomish County and city parks.
This award honors property owners who have excelled in beautifying and maintaining property over the years.
An awards ceremony for the winners is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Oct. 10 at the Everett Performing Arts Center, 2710 Wetmore Ave.
Nomination forms are available to pick up at the Everett Library branches, the City of Everett's office lobby in the Wall Street Building, the PUD, and at local home improvement, paint and lumber stores and through neighborhood associations. Or to request a nomination form, contact Wendy McClure, coordinator for the Office of Neighborhoods, at 425-257-8717 or wmcclure@everettwa.gov.
