The recognized landscapes will receive a certificate to commemorate their contribution to keeping Lubbock beautiful. An online photo gallery with award recipients will also be available on the Keep Lubbock Beautiful webpage and Facebook page @KeepLubbockBeautiful.
Keep Lubbock Beautiful is a local affiliate of Keep America Beautiful and Keep Texas Beautiful. The Advisory Committee consists of eleven community members volunteering to spread the ideals of beautification and civic pride throughout the city. Working with the City of Lubbock, the organization encourages citizens to participate actively in making and keeping Lubbock a beautiful place to live.
