Keep America Beautiful

Vision for America Award Dinner

Vision_AwardSince 1986, Keep America Beautiful's Vision for America Award has been presented annually to distinguished leaders of honored corporations, whose personal and corporate commitment have significantly enhanced civic, environmental and social stewardship throughout the U.S. For the first time in 1997, a special Vision for America Award was presented for lifetime achievement.

The Vision for America Award is a limited-edition piece in which the design of the crystal pays tribute to America and our country's beautiful red, white and blue banner. The 13 facets on the massive vertical cylinder symbolize the 13 stripes of the American flag and remind us of our historical beginnings, as a new nation of 13 former colonies. On the top of the slanted surface of the crystal are etched 50 miniature stars, symbolizing the union of the 50 states.
