Show What “Stewardship” Means through Photos

Stewardship - Evan WEB

Stewardship is just ONE word – yet it speaks volumes in the SERVE Photo Contest. You’ve heard it said, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” True enough, but for now through Friday, August 24, let’s focus on the singularly powerful word “stewardship” and what it means or what it looks like.

Our City Manager, Bruce Glasscock, led the charge by expressing his definition of Stewardship. In part, he said, “…Key words I associate with Stewardship are trust and integrity – responsibility and accountability. Understanding that we are all responsible and accountable for managing the resources we have been entrusted with...”

Over the next couple of months, the SERVE (Stewardship Engaged Respectful Visionary Excellence) philosophy of doing business focuses on the Stewardship part of our new organizational values. Defined, it is being “mindful of resources in a consistent and transparent manner.”

It’s YOUR TURN to share what Stewardship means to you with pictures! The SERVE Photo Contest ends next week Friday, August 24. Here’s how you can enter and WIN PRIZES:

  1. Take a picture showing how you define and/or live stewardship:
    • Printing the 8 ½ x 11 sign. Fill in the blank on the sign (preferably with a dark marker)      
      “To me, STEWARDSHIP means ________.” OR,
    • Take a picture of yourself at work.

  2. Submit your photo (include name and department) by email to

  3. When you email the image(s), include the following statements in your own words:
    • To me, STEWARDSHIP means ______________________________.
    • I became a member of Team Plano because ______________________.

NOTE:  Just a couple of words or short phrase will do fine.


Several prize-winning pictures will be drawn from entries. Afterwards, look for a slideshow of the winners’ photos on Team Plano.

In addition, your picture might appear on the City of Plano website (, or perhaps on one of Plano’s social media pages (Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter) with the hashtags, #TeamPlano and #PlanoStewardship. Why? This extra exposure lets potential Team Plano members see why you chose to be part of this organization.

We’re excited to see images of how you choose to SERVE.
