Smithville Elementary was honored at the Keep Texas Beautiful's 44th Annual Conference in Austin on Wednesday, June 22, 2011. The ceremony was held at the AT&T Executive Education & Conference Center on the University of Texas campus.
The conference goals were to celebrate and recognize the achievements of youth and community leaders (of all ages), civic groups, businesses and governments; offer an array of educational sessions to relay pertinent, innovative approaches to community beautification, waste reduction and litter prevention; and provide unparalleled networking opportunities and exciting presentations from knowledgeable experts and those with a passion for the environment.
The Keep Smithville Beautiful committee nominated Smithville Elementary for this award based upon the trash pickup, recycling, electricity awareness, and gardening programs at the school. We are excited to have been nominated and will proudly display the 2nd place certificate at the school.
