Spearheaded by the Coalition, Decatur entered the America in Bloom (AIB) National Awards Program for the first time in Summer 2018 which brought AIB judges to evaluate our community's beautification efforts. The annual AIB symposium was held in Kentucky and Decatur brought home bragging rights and a total prize of $3,000 for its video entry that focused on the beautification and volunteer efforts as well as the involvement with AIB.

Additionally, Decatur also won the "#CatchingCommunitySpirit - Best Use of Social Media" award. The community was also recognized for its landscaped areas and for its profile submission. Continue reading about these national honors and our AIB journey here.
