Instilling a sense of ownership of their environment to our young people is a paramount to Anaheim Beautiful and each and every program we offer has this goal in mind. We believe by providing our children with the proper knowledge and tools, they will grow up with the desire to make a difference in the places they choose to live their lives.
Our annual Community Pride Poster Contest does an excellent job in reaching out to these young minds and giving them an opportunity to use their artist talents to explore all they can do to help their environment, while learning about why this is important. Spreading this message to more than 25,000 children each year through this program with the help of our sponsors, Anaheim Beautiful is truly making a difference in the future of our city.
Additionally, we continue to support the importance of protecting and beautifying our environment by offering annual scholarships to Anaheim residents through the Thelma Jordan Scholarship Program. Awards of $1,000 are provided to selected students who are pursuing education in the Urban Environmental Studies discipline.
Lastly, our Campus Beautiful Program provides funding and volunteer support for projects aimed at improving the beauty of our city’s educational campuses. Working with the Anaheim school districts and business sponsors, we have had an impact on improving the learning environment for the youth of Anaheim.
