The Green Awards recognize businesses and other establishments across Newport News that are making a visible difference in the quality of life and beauty of the city by planting and maintaining landscaping that enhances the beauty of Newport News and the preservation of local greenery. To date, The Green Foundation has helped preserve over 25 acres of green space throughout the City. Tickets to attend are $40 and can be purchased online.
