2019-2020 PARTNER OF THE YEAR
Congratulations to the City of Grand Prairie!
Based on criteria in the Air North Texas Partner Agreement and information provided in the annual progress report, the City of Grand Prairie was named Air North Texas Partner of the Year for the fifth straight year.
Grand Prairie developed a year-long communications and community outreach plan that utilized an email campaign, social media advertising, newsletters, website content, and an internal employee campaign focused on supporting Air North Texas and Clean Air Action Day. This resulted in high levels of attendance for community outreach events like Cyclin’ with the Mayor at Prairie Lights. Grand Prairie also challenged major local businesses like Lockheed Martin and PepsiCo to compete to see who could commit to the most clean air initiatives through the Clean Air Action Challenge.
