Clean Block Contest

Getting a clean block and a cash prize? That’s a win-win.

Blocks organized for at least two years are eligible to join PMBC’s annual Clean Block Contest. Each September, judges selected by PMBC visit each contest block and evaluate them on organization, cleanliness, improvements, and participation. The winning blocks are announced at a gala Clean Block Banquet in November, where each participating block receives a cash reward.

The annual Clean Block contest is the culmination of the cleaning season that involves a lot of hard work and dedication on behalf of the volunteers who make up the PMBC network.
