WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A group that helps keep North Carolina clean has won a grant to support its work.

North Carolina Big Sweep finished first in the voting in the MillerCoors River Network competition. The first prize is a $30,000 grant.

The statewide non-profit group says the money will be used to coordinate cleanups in all 100 counties in North Carolina and to implement a litter awareness campaign.

WWAY has partnered with Big Sweep on annual beach clean-up programs in the area.
