Several Kentucky towns have made their submissions to be featured on a new HGTV show!

Lawrenceburg, Ky., in Anderson County has been submitted for consideration to be the city they choose for

The show, hosted by Ben and Erin Napier from the series 'Home Town,' will makeover an entire town. The six-episode special event is set to air on HGTV in 2021.

The criteria for the show include towns with a population of 40,000 or less, homes with great architecture and a Main Street that needs some work.

The Lawrenceburg/Anderson County Tourism office teamed up with the Anderson Public Library to put together a video to enter, and also submitted a 1,300-word description of why they think the town should be chosen for the show.

The Rockcastle Arts Association submitted a nearly eight-minute video of locals explaining why they want HGTV to take over downtown Mt. Vernon in Rockcastle County.

You can watch that submission below.

A sixth-grader from Burkesville, Ky., has also submitted a video application to get her town on the show.

The deadline to apply for the contest is Friday.

There's no word on when a winner will be chosen, but the 6-episode special will air on HGTV in 2021.
