The deadline for the annual Keep Montgomery County Clean and Green Landscape Beautification Contest has been extended to June 17!

The contest recognizes community groups, businesses, public institutions and other organizations undertaking landscaping projects that enhance the appearance of commonly owned sections of commercial or residential properties in Montgomery County. Landscaping along County roadsides, medians, or other public locations is also eligible for the award.

Categories include:

  • RainScapes (New this year!)
  • Commercial/Retail
  • Public/Private/Institution
  • Youth
  • Community Spaces
  • Sustained Maintenance (Professional and non-professional)

Landscapes should emphasize environmentally sensitive plantings that eschew non-native and invasive species, help reduce stormwater runoff, minimize water use, provide wildlife habitat, and keep pesticides and fertilizers out of local streams.

This contest was formerly known as the Keep Montgomery County Beautiful Awards. It is a part of the newly rebranded Keep Montgomery County Clean and Green program. The name was changed to reflect the combined importance of landscaping and environmental protection.  It is sponsored by the Montgomery County Department of Transportation.

MCDOT is also accepting applications for its Annual Amateur Photography competition through July 1.
