The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) has announced 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.
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 and 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 citizen attitudes about littering and graffiti.
For the 20th Annual Amateur Photography Contest, photos were judged on effective composition, originality, technique, interest and relevance of the subject matter. This year there were 21 entries.
For info on the award winners, see the County’s website.
