2006 - Community Effort Award - City of Ardmore: "Go Green Day"

Community Effort Award (population 10,000-25,000) - City of Ardmore: "Go Green Day"

Proving that a great plan and motivated citizens can trump raw, wet weather any day, Ardmore’s inaugural “Go-Green Day” event in March generated many impressive results despite its modest number of participants.

More than 34-hundred pounds of litter and recyclable items were collected as part of a three-pronged approach that included free pick-ups of residential appliances. By working with an array of generous sponsors and getting thousands of dollars worth of free advertising, this new project of the Ardmore Beautification Council was carried off without a budget.

One judge noted the idea began with one person at KICM radio and quickly grew to become a major environmental awareness campaign that was bound to have an increasing impact in the years to come. 

City of Ardmore and your “Go-Green Day” backers, the excellence in your performance is an inspiration to communities across Oklahoma, and we salute you!
