Each month, representatives from Kilgore Improvement and Beautification Association review properties across the city and choose the best examples of landscaping, yard decoration and presentation.
The monthly winners place a KIBA sign in front of their home or business in recognition of their achievement.
Awards are presented to a residential property, a commercial property and a Beauty Spot of the Month is chosen as well.
For July, the Yard of the Month was awarded to Kim and Craig Hughes of 2702 Spruce St.
