A Nicollet Mall Advisory Board committee is looking for volunteer judges to participate in the 2004 Nicollet Mall beauty contest.
The judges critique the Mall's blocks from 3rd Street South to Grant Street on Loring Park's southern point. The blocks are judged on landscaping, maintenance and cooperation among property owners on beautification efforts.
In 2003, judges selected the Nicollet Mall block between 12th and 13th streets as the prettiest. The block is home to the Westminster Presbyterian Church, 1200 Marquette Ave.
