Beautification Contest

The Sandy City Beautification Contest has been conducted each year by the Sandy Beautification Committee. Awards are given to residents and businesses within Sandy's borders which have made the extra effort to beautify their properties. Categories which were judged in the past have included: All Around, Water Conservation, Before and After and Water Features.

Sandy Pride

Sandy Pride is a community-wide event that helps foster a heightened community awareness and pride in Sandy neighborhoods. The spirit of the day is recognized through community cleanup programs and beautification projects. The number of projects and volunteers has grown each year since its inception in 1984 by the Sandy Exchange Club.


Residents, businesses, groups or individuals are all encouraged to participate. Please visit Sandy Pride for an updated list showing potential project availability then contact Amy at 801-568-7254 or aanderton@sandy.utah.gov to secure the project for you and your group or for assignment assistance.
