2000 - Youth Award - 16-18 Years Old - Wynnewood Junior Main Street

When there’s a community project in Wynnewood, the Wynnewood Junior Main Street group will always be there to help. Whether it’s a “Trash Off Day” or time to decorate downtown for a fall festival, Junior Main Streeters turn out in droves, often bringing as many as 80 to 100 volunteers to a project. They have helped renovate buildings downtown, learning history and gaining pride in their community. When they organized the Hall of Trees, they cleaned out an unused office building and gathered decorated Christmas trees from local donors. They arranged and manned the display, which helped to raise funds for the Angel Tree program. The Wynnewood Junior Main Streeters’ involvement in city events helps them know that they are an important part of the community... AND THAT’S VERY GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S ENVIRONMENT!
