Annual 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 grades Pre K – 12.
The Beautify Your School Contest is a grounds clean up and beautification competition that challenges schools to improve their surroundings by first cleaning up their school grounds then beautifying 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… this includes environmental fairs, recycling programs, clean ups, farm to table gardens, etc.
Schools are encouraged to enter in more than one category. Categories: Renovations; Outdoor Classrooms/Garden/School Sign; Go Green; Creativity.
Schools must submit the official form and a poster documenting the project(s). A panel of judges from Memphis City Beautiful, WREG News Channel 3 and Landers Ford review the projects and select winners in first, second and third places in each category.
Cash prizes and trophies are awarded and five (5) representatives from the 1st place winning schools of each category are featured on News Channel 3 Live at 9.
