What do you get when high schoolers plan a one-day whirlwind of downtown improvement and beautification projects? You get "The Big Bang…A Community Thang” and a lot of admiration from the whole town. There was nothing small about Hobart Junior Main Street’s ambitious idea of tackling several major projects in just a day. It took careful planning, coordination with the city council and Hobart Beautification Commission, promotion at civic clubs, and the corralling of large numbers of volunteers in order to be a success. One of our judges said it all was “truly awesome.” Another was impressed by how it touched the entire community. We congratulate the Environmental Excellence Award winners for older youth groups, Hobart Junior Main Street – they’re in a class by themselves!
Accepting for Hobart Junior Main Street (L to R): Louis Sims, Roger Hill, Rod Mayhard, Stephen Boyd
