Missouri Community Betterment judges visited Houston on Tuesday as part of the annual awards competition.
During the visit, judges saw local community projects showcased since the last awards competition. Last year, Houston won first in its population category for the town and youth programs.
Elaine Campbell organized the event at the Melba Theatre.
Participating communities will be recognized Oct. 13-14 at the 56th annual MCB conference at Heritage Fields at Mexico. Community members and youth are invited to attend the information educational sessions and the awards competition where the winners of the adult and youth leadership awards, community awards and community youth group awards will be recognized.
This year’s event will feature a new activity — Town Square Fair. The event allows towns to showcase what makes their community unique, about its history and how it has framed the community and current efforts to move things forward.
