Fleurs de Prairie 2020 Seed Grant Program Overview

The Seeds of Beauty campaign acknowledges those who create beauty in their communities and aims to celebrate and support creative spirits in their endeavors.  For the second year in a row, Fleurs de Prairie is providing Seed Grants to three creators to help fuel their passions!

Seed Grants:

Seed grant applications will be accepted Tuesday, June 23– Monday, August 31, 2020.

Applicants will be narrowed down to ten finalists.  If you are a finalist, you will be notified by September 15, 2020.  The names and photographs of the ten finalists will be posted on the Fleurs de Prairie website so the public can vote on their favorite creator.  Social voting results will be a component of judging.

Seed grant winners will be notified and announced the week of October 5th, 2020.


Fleurs de Prairie will select three creators who embody the brand’s mission and supply each of them with a $5,000 seed grant to help fund their endeavors. Winners and their stories will be featured on the Fleurs de Prairie social platforms with potential partnership opportunities in the following year.

Seed grant winners will also be invited to a #FleurishTogether Mentorship Happy Hour, led by marquee ambassadors Grace Atwood of The Stripe blog and Bad on Paper podcast, Kate Arends of Wit & Delight, and Hayet Rida of That Hayet Rida and The Rida Collective. They will provide one-on-one business lessons and offer guidance on how to grow and propel the winners’ careers.
