Communities, churches, boy scouts, girl scouts, companies, activists, or just ordinary citizens can organize litter cleanup events or simply log existing events and efforts as they occur. At the end of the contest, the community with the most litter cleaned up per resident will recieve the North Texas Community Cleanup award that they can proudly display in their city hall.
