Two Port Hedland locations are competing for the WA Clean Beaches title: Cemetery Beach and Pretty Pool Beach.
Final judging will take place on June 28 for the beach prize – one of three categories in KAB WA’s Sustainable Communities Awards.
The awards are judged on community action and well-being, heritage and culture, litter and waste management, youth involvement, sustainability and environmental education.
In other categories, Albany and Fremantle are finalists for the Sustainable Cities WA award, while seven locations are vying for the Tidy Towns State title: Albany, Collie, Greenbushes, Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Miling, Newman and Port/South Hedland.
The State winners, to be announced in September, 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.
