About the Program
This awards program recognizes both business and residential properties within the City of Midland for landscaping and structural site improvements that are readily visible to the public. Committee members divide the city into nine zones (see below) and are responsible for nominating beautiful properties in these zones. The Bette R. Tollar Civic Commitment Award recognizes major beautification accomplishments that benefit the community as a whole.
This program takes place each spring and encourages creativity among children in the 2nd and 6th grade, by creating a poster on "what makes Midland beautiful." This is a cooperative program involving more than 800 Midland elementary school children. A single representative is selected to represent each school and is honored during a Midland City Council Meeting in May.
