President's Circle Award
Keep America Beautiful has presented Keep Midland Beautiful with the 2020 President's Circle award!! This award recognizes exemplary performance by certified affiliates of Keep America Beautiful in creating clean, green, and beautiful communities!
In qualifying for the President’s Circle Award, Keep Midland Beautiful has met standards of merit of Keep America Beautiful by conducting an annual Community Appearance Index; calculating the affiliate’s cost/benefit ratio; and administering initiatives to end littering, improve recycling, and beautify Midland's community. Keep Midland Beautiful is one of nearly 700 community-based affiliates in the Keep America Beautiful network whose programs, initiatives, and efforts, supported by millions of volunteers, help transform public spaces into beautiful places.
Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB), a statewide grassroots environmental and community improvement non-profit organization, recently name Keep Midland Beautiful a Gold Star Affiliate, a designation granted to 57 affiliates of KTB's nearly 300 affiliates. Gold Star recognition is the membership recognition highest status any community affiliate can achieve.
To remain in good standing with KTB, community affiliates must submit a report, pay dues, attend training, and participate in a KTB-endorsed activity annually. In 2004, the organization introduced the concept of Gold Star recognition to reward those communities who sought to go above and beyond the established requirements. To achieve this status, affiliates must share information on their mission and goals, answer questions about their economic development and diversity and inclusion practices or participate in the Keep Texas Beautiful Awards or Governor's Community Achievement Awards programs and provide a letter of support from their community. KTB will formally recognize Gold Star communities during its 53rd Annual Conference, held in Houston on September 28-30.
The Texas Governor's Community Achievement Award is an honor bestowed to cities with the best grass-roots environmental programs in the state. With funds from this award, several beautification projects have been installed in the community.
