The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) announced announces 47 winners of its 25th annual Keep Montgomery County Beautiful (KMCB) community beautification awards. Fourteen amateur photographers were also honored in addition to two Adopt A Road volunteers.
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 residents’ 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.
