Air North Texas logo with tag line Partners' environmental efforts recognized

The city of Grand Prairie was named Air North Texas Partner of the Year in December in recognition of its efforts to promote cleaner air. Grand Prairie implemented a comprehensive outreach and communications plan that included events, social media, employee engagement and outreach to youth and businesses.


The city planned several events to celebrate Clean Air Action Day, a regional event held on the first Friday of summer each year to encourage North Texans to make clean air commitments.


In 2014, Grand Prairie’s celebrations included contests for city employees and businesses, as well as an art competition for children attending camp. The city also distributed Air North Texas information at local health fairs and fitness events and used campaign materials to promote clean air through an environmental newsletter sent to residents.


Grand Prairie was joined by five other entities who made significant contributions to the region’s air quality campaign. 

  • The University of Texas at Arlington, Outstanding Partner Involvement
  • City of Fort Worth, Outstanding Outreach Efforts
  • City of Plano, Outstanding Advertising
  • Hood County Clean Air Coalition, Outstanding Initiative
  • Denton County Transportation Authority, Outstanding Media Engagement
