The Honey Brook Community Partnership will post an entry form for its “Name the Brook” Contest on its website at www.hbpartnership.org, effective April 19, 2021. The contest seeks to gather ideas for naming a stream officially designated as “Unnamed Tributary #4 to an Unnamed Tributary of the West Branch of the Brandywine Creek,” a 1.5-mile long stream that originates in Honey Brook Borough and travels through both the Borough and Honey Brook Township before emptying into a larger unnamed tributary of the Brandywine. The contest will be in two phases: name submissions and voting.
The Name the Brook Committee will collect names until May 14, 2021, from which they will select the best ideas from among the submissions and present a slate of stream name candidates for the community at large to vote on. Votes will be collected between May 17 and June 1, 2021.
The winning name will be announced and submitted on an application to the United States Geographic Names Board in June. Once the name is approved, the Partnership will share the news with the community.
