More than 130 invited guests enjoy a light dinner in the EOB cafeteria at the annual Beautification Award Ceremony

At this year’s 27th annual Keep Montgomery County Beautiful (KMCB) awards ceremony, MCDOT in cooperation with the KMCB Task Force honored 66 beautification award winners and 55 amateur photographers. In addition, two people received the Clean Sweep Awards for the Adopt a Road program and one award was presented for the Governor’s Proclamation of the Largest Tree in the State of Maryland.

The beautification competition is open to community groups, businesses, public institutions and other organizations undertaking landscaping projects that enhance the appearance of commonly owned sections of commercial or residential properties. Landscaping can also take place along County roadsides, medians or other public locations.

More than 20 years ago, concerned volunteers formed the Keep Montgomery County Beautiful Task Force to work with the County to develop beautification projects and anti-litter and recycling programs. The group also conducts public education to change resident attitudes about littering and graffiti. Business and organization sponsors for the ceremony included the Bethesda Urban Partnership and Bethesda Florist.

For a complete listing of the award winners and links to winning photographs or shots of winning landscape projects, see the County's press release.
