Community nominations are being taken now by Keep Pearland Beautiful for the group’s environmental awards.
KPB recognizes residents and businesses annually for their contributions to an area that demonstrates environmental responsibility. Area assistance is needed to help KPB know who is deserving of such awards.
According to KPB officials, nominations are only limited by imagination. The only requirement is that the person(s) or organization(s) nominated must have made a significant contribution to conserving and improving the environment in Pearland in the past year.
Past awards have included a Golden Pear Award, Business of the Year, Recycler of the Year, Re-Use Award, Clean Up Award, Beatification Award, School Volunteer Award, and Educator of the Year Award.
The winner(s) of the awards will be chosen by the Keep Pearland Beautiful awards committee. Nominations must be received by Thursday October 31, 2019. All awards will be presented at The KPB Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner on November 14, 2019.
Keep Pearland Beautiful is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit environmental organization affiliated with Keep Texas Beautiful, Inc. and Keep America Beautiful, Inc.
