The Locust Grove Oklahoma Area Chamber of Commerce honors local homeowners and businesses that make a special effort to beautify their premises.

Each month, a home or business is awarded the LG Yard of the Month and will receive a gift certificate to a local business.

The Chamber program is facilitated by Locust Grove Middle School teacher Missy Ingram and her students. The students choose each month’s winner.

  3. House must be in LG or within the LG school district.
  4. Porch and yard must be free of debris that does not fit the decor of the home and yard.

Judging takes place by the 25th of each month for the following month’s award.
