Vote For Your Favorite Property on Facebook

An independent 501(c)3 nonprofit, charitable organization, the Newport News Green Foundation works to enhance the quality of life in Newport News by preserving, transforming, and promoting green spaces throughout the city. In 2008, the foundation’s Board of Directors established the Green Awards to recognize City businesses that plant and maintain landscaping that enhances the beauty of Newport News. Green Award recipients set an example for the community and encourage others to make a visible difference in our city. A winner is named in each district of the City, plus a past winner is recognized with the Maintenance Award for continued efforts to maintain their landscape to visually enhance the city. 

Additionally, there is a People's Choice award that provides an opportunity for the citizens to pick theirnngreen foundation favorite property from the four award recipients. Voting is done through a poll running on the Foundation’s Facebook page that will be open through September 22nd. This year's People’s Choice award is sponsored by Canon Virginia, Inc. and is being presented to the winner during the Foundation’s annual Party at the Pond event on September 27th.

The Green Award recipients and People’s Choice nominees are:
South District: St. James Terrace Apartments
Central District: W.J. Smith and Son Funeral Home
North District: CarMax Auto Superstore
Maintenance Award: Colony Animal Hospital
