KTRE earns Keep Texas Beautiful Award

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (News Release) -

Keep Texas Beautiful recently announced KTRE TV Channel 9 as a winner of the 2014 Media Award in electronic media, one of the awards it bestows to honor those who protect the Texas environment and support the organization's mission to make Texas the cleanest, most beautiful state in the nation.         

The electronic media award recognizes the public awareness and education efforts of media in supporting environmental issues.

Each year, Keep Texas Beautiful acknowledges deserving individuals, businesses, community groups, civic organizations, media, government entities and law enforcement officials for their commitment to an array of environmental issues, including litter prevention and community beautification, volunteerism, illegal dumping enforcement and education.

Angelina Beautiful/Clean teamed up with KTRE TV 9 to celebrate and educate East Texas residents during the week of America Recycles Day. Each day KTRE featured a recycling story to promote the national event and inspire our community to Keep Angelina County Beautiful.

The idea was to build excitement about a local recycling announcement that would take place on Friday, November 15th, America Recycles Day. With each news story the reporter would encourage viewers to watch on Friday to hear the exciting recycling announcement.

Award winners were recognized at KTB's 47th Annual Conference, held June 23-25 in Austin. A full list of winners and award descriptions, as well as information about the conference can be found at www.ktb.org.  

Keep Texas Beautiful, a statewide grassroots environmental and community improvement nonprofit, strives to educate and engage Texans to take responsibility for improving their community environment. KTB and its more than 360 affiliates work with government, businesses, civic groups, and volunteers to ensure that every Texan has the opportunity to make Texas the cleanest, most beautiful state in the nation.  For more information on programs and events, call 1-800-CLEAN-TX or visit www.ktb.org.
