2015-2016 PARTNER OF THE YEAR

Congratulations to the City of Grand Prairie!

Based on criteria in the Air North Texas Partner Agreement and information provided on the annual progress report, the City of Grand Prairie was selected as the 2015-2016 Air North Texas Partner of the Year.

Grand Prairie was chosen by an award committee composed of North Central Texas Council of Governments staff and previous Air North Texas award recipients; they implemented a comprehensive outreach and communications plan that included events, social media and employee engagement.

Grand Prairie's efforts to raise awareness about air quality took place throughout the year and included regular social media posts, air quality alerts, articles in city newsletters and promotion at several citywide events. These efforts culminated with the Clean Air Challenge, an annual contest held by the City to encourage employers and businesses to make clean air choices. Major participants included Turbomeca USA and Lockheed Martin, the winner of this year’s challenge.
