The Keep Arkansas Beautiful Foundation recently received a Keep America Beautiful (KAmB) State Affiliate Innovation Award for the Litter-Free Zone program during the organization’s 57th annual national conference. The Innovation Award recognizes KAmB affiliates for developing innovative programs and partnerships that further KAmB’s mission.

“Innovation is a critical component that can inspire Arkansans to participate in our programs,” said Robert Phelps, interim executive director of the Keep Arkansas Beautiful Foundation. “Our Litter-Free Zone program has proven to be an exceptional way to engage students, as well as their parents, in a valuable service-learning project.”
