Beautify Texas Awards

Congratulations to this year's Beautify Texas Award Winners

The Beautify Texas Awards include many of the same categories of the former Keep Texas Beautiful Awards. They are now organized into two main categories, Individual Awards and Organization Awards. The application period will open and close at the same time for all awards.

The Beautify Texas Awards, formerly the Keep Texas Beautiful Awards, recognize the efforts of those working to enhance their community and protecting the Lone Star State. These awards range in honoring extraordinary volunteers, professionals, youth, educators, businesses, local/civic governments, organizations, and specific projects and programs. One winner per category will be selected and recognized at the annual KTB Conference.
