The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) has announced its 25th Annual Beautification and Photography contests, both of which are sponsored by MCDOT in cooperation with the Keep Montgomery County Beautiful (KMCB) Task Force.
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 the award.
The Amateur Photography Contest photos of County locations or residents are judged on effective composition, originality, interest and relevance of the subject matter, and technique. Subject categories include Montgomery County by day or by night, County landmarks, people, and persons at work. There is also an optional youth category for kids under 18 who wish to be judged only against their peers.
Nominations for both contests are due by June 20. For more information or downloadable nomination forms, visit MCDOT’s website or contact the Community Outreach Office by calling 240-777-7155.
