Keep the Rez Beautiful, a nonprofit in the Ross Barnett Reservoir area, is looking for designers to compete in the show. Designers must be 16-years-old or older. Tickets cost $25, and all money raised pays for tree plantings and litter cleanups in the Reservoir area. The event aims to raise awareness to the importance of recycling and shows how commonly discarded items can be put to use again. Major sponsors include the Rezonate! Initiative, Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality, Kathryn's Steakhouse, The Naked Grape, Barnett Reservoir Foundation, Keep Mississippi Beautiful and Pearl River Valley Water Supply District.
