Keep Sugar Land Beautiful received Keep America Beautiful President’s Circle Award during Keep America Beautiful’s 60th anniversary National Conference, which recently took place in Washington, D.C. The President’s Circle Award recognizes exemplary performance by certified affiliates of the national nonprofit in building and sustaining vibrant communities.
In qualifying for a President’s Circle Award, Keep Sugar Land Beautiful has met Keep America Beautiful’s standards of excellence which include conducting an annual Community Appearance Index, calculating the affiliate’s cost/benefit ratio, and administering activities in litter prevention, recycling, waste reduction, beautification and community greening.
“One of Keep America Beautiful’s most effective tools is the work of our grassroots network of affiliate organizations, which has an impact on millions of Americans each year,” said Keep America Beautiful President and CEO Matt McKenna. “Our affiliates are providing real solutions to local problems caused by litter, graffiti, illegal dumping and other community blight by engaging volunteers of all ages in its effort to create a vibrant community.”
