The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) announced 34 winners of its 24th annual Keep Montgomery County Beautiful (KMCB) community beautification awards and honored 17 amateur photographers in the 19th Annual Amateur Photography Contest.
More than 20 years ago, concerned volunteers formed the KMCB Task Force to work with the County to develop beautification projects and anti-litter and recycling programs. The group also conducts public education campaigns to change residnets’ attitudes about littering and graffiti.
The beautification contest 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 along County roadsides, medians, or other public locations is also eligible for awards.
The photography contest is open to individuals, and there is also a youth category for those under the age of 18. Photos were judged on effective composition, originality, technique, interest and relevance of the subject matter.
For more information about the winners, go to the County’s website.
