COVINGTON, Ky. - Forget the gold statuettes.
 
If you own a home or business in Covington, what you want is a Friends of Covington Beautification Award banner to be hung on the outside of your building for years to come.
 
Tonight at 7 p.m. (brought to you via YouTube livestreaming HERE), the Friends will announce the 22 winners of the 29th annual award.
 
It’s meant to recognize owners “for their investments of time, energy, and money in efforts to make the city a better place to live, work, and play.”
 
The winners are spread throughout 20 neighborhoods, according to the Friends, which are one of the oldest civic organizations in the city.
 
Winners will receive the traditional white-and-blue Friends of Covington banner to display on the outside of their building, a certificate, and a Covington-themed gift bag.
 
The ceremony is being held virtually this year because of the pandemic. In typical years, it’s held at the Behringer-Crawford Museum in Covington’s Devou Park.
