The beach prize is one of three categories in KAB WA’s Sustainable Communities Awards, which are judged on community action and well-being, heritage and culture, litter and waste management, youth involvement, sustainability and environmental education.
In other categories, Tidy Towns attracted 43 entries while six locations are hoping for the Sustainable Cities prize – Albany, Fremantle, Gosnells, Karratha, Rockingham and Wanneroo.
KAB WA will select finalists for judging visits in May and June. The State winners will become WA’s representatives in the national KAB awards programs.
In 2015, Guilderton won the Australian Clean Beaches Award at both State and national levels. Albany recently won the national Tidy Towns heritage and culture award for its commemorations of Aboriginal and European history.
