Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) is now accepting applications for the 2013 Keep Texas Beautiful Youth and Educator Awards. The award program honors extraordinary students, educators and volunteers working to improve and beautify their communities. Awards are given in a number of categories to elementary through college-level youth, as well as educators and youth organizers.
The Ruthe Jackson Youth Leadership Awards recognize the outstanding efforts made by youth whose accomplishments are bringing about cleaner, more beautiful campuses, parks and communities. The Sadie Ray Graff Awards recognize those in the field of education who encourage or demonstrate efforts to promote the Keep Texas Beautiful mission of educating and engaging Texans to take responsibility for improving their community environment.
In addition to the award recognition, all first place winners also receive a $100 cash prize. KTB will formally present the Youth and Educator Awards during its 46th Annual Conference in San Antonio, scheduled for June 17-20, 2013.
