Cleanest City Contest (CCC)
In 1958, the LGCF was first among members of the National Garden Clubs, Inc. to sponsor a state wide “Cleanest City Contest.” The aim of the contest is to instill civic pride in the individual citizens and thus, improve the appearance of towns and cities. Each year competition has become stronger, and the cities and towns have achieved higher and higher standards of cleanliness. We point with pride to the many participating communities through the years – and to the ever-increasing number who work year round to keep their communities clean and beautiful.
