2003 - Community Effort Award - Population greater than 25,000 - Ardmore Beautification Council
A comprehensive 13-point plan of attack, strong and
steady media exposure, eye-catching print materials and a website all
added up to an enthusiastic "Wow!" from our judges for Ardmore and its
Great American Cleanup this year.
Six months of careful planning went into the three-month cleanup campaign. Among the 3,000 volunteers were many
first-timers. They cleared nearly six tons of litter and debris,
cleaned 30 miles of roadways, and planted over 700 shrubs, trees and
The projects were cleverly designed to have a lasting effect
on the city's beauty and the habits of its citizens. For setting a high
standard in planning, results and enthusiasm, the Ardmore
Beautification Council's Great American Cleanup is good news for sparkling communities in Oklahoma.
