2002 - Nonprofit Organization Awards - Environmental Improvement - OKC Beautiful's LitterBlitz

For the past two years, Oklahoma City’s war on litter – LitterBlitz - has found an invaluable ally in the form of OKC Beautiful. And this year, arming the troops with enough trash bags was a challenge because the troops just kept on coming – the 35-hundred volunteers were about 800 more than the year before.

But those volunteers do a great job of making a hard job seem like fun. Each participating team receives supplies of bags, latex gloves, stickers, a mayoral proclamation, flower seeds and even a calorie counter card to tally up the health benefits. The OKC Beautiful staff helps designate locations to clean for those teams that can’t decide on one.

The judges called the three-week springtime effort a “dynamite” project. For successfully using LitterBlitz as a catalyst to inspire continual anti-litter efforts throughout the year, OKC BEAUTIFUL’S LITTERBLITZ IS GOOD NEWS FOR A REALLY CLEAN-LOOKING CAPITAL CITY IN OKLAHOMA!
