EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The Keep America Beautiful organization is giving the local group Keep Evansville Beautiful an award for its litter prevention program.

Officials say most of the credit goes to local volunteers.

"For us to win two national awards when we know we are the only affiliate in the United States that does not get government funding is amazing to the quality of people in Evansville who make this work possible," Ann Ennis, Keep Evansville Beautiful, said.

Keep Evansville Beautiful also won a second place award for its 'Welcome to Evansville' sign on Highway 41 near the airport.
