Beautify Your School Contest

Since 1990, Memphis City Beautiful has partnered with WREG News Channel 3 and Landers Ford on the annual Beautify Your School Contest, open to all schools and grades Pre-K-12.  

The Beautify Your School Contest is a cleanup and beautification competition that challenges schools to improve their surroundings by first cleaning up their grounds then beautifying them with anything from plantings to murals and garden art. In addition, the Go Green category allows schools to showcase projects and programs directly related to the environment, including environmental fairs, recycling programs, cleanups, farm-to-table gardens, and more.  

 Cash prizes and trophies are awarded and five representatives from the first-place winning schools of each category are featured on WREG’s Live at 9. 

Congratulations to the winners of the 30th Annual Beautify Your School Contest for the 2021-2022 school year!
