Keep Sedona Beautiful announced the winners of its annual Awards of Excellence on Valentines Day, Feb. 14, at a jam-packed luncheon ceremony at Los Abrigados Resort.
Our own Big Park Elementary School received the Conservation Award for the installation of roof-mounted solar generating panels.
An astounding $41,000 savings in utility costs each year is anticipated. An enlightened school district was credited for their major emphasis on energy conservation in new construction ... and Big Park set the trend. Proudly accepting the award for the Big Park School was Principal Steve Gardner.
Each year since 1972, Keep Sedona Beautiful, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the wonder of Sedona, has recognized individuals, businesses and organizations in the Greater Sedona area for architectural design, landscaping, lighting and special service which contribute in a significant way to "Keeping Sedona Beautiful."
