Each year MDCB hosts an annual meeting to share the good works of the previous year and a vision for the coming season.

With the annual meeting comes the Oscar Awards. Envisioned in 2010, Oscars are given to those individuals and organizations in our community that exemplify “beautification”. This can be, but not limited to, volunteer service, taking care of property – home or business, managing a median, bringing awareness to a critical environmental need, artistic pursuits that enhance our community, and building or creating sustainable infrastructure. We accept nominations year round, with awards typically being decided on by the Board in the early spring to be given at our annual meeting in March or April.

Due to COVID-19, we were unable to host our in-person Oscar Award Ceremony for 2020, so we honored our fabulous Oscar Awardees online.
