KPB can provide prizes and judges for essay and art contests with environmental themes.
The KIPPERS (Kids in Pearland Preserving the Environment through Responsible Service) are Pearland middle school aged children who do service projects and learn about taking care of our environment.
We are looking for high school students in Pearland to be a part of our Youth Environmental Council! Students will meet monthly to develop leadership skills and create positive environmental change.
The Keep Pearland Beautiful (KPB) Youth Environmental Council (YEC) is a group designed to create environmental leaders through advisory service. Students applying to be a part of YEC must be entering their sophomore, junior or senior year from one of the 4 Pearland area high schools:

The free family friendly fair is held every spring. This fair is a partnership between the City of Pearland, the KIPPERS, and KPB.
