A call for bright ideas

February 14 is the deadline to enter the Municipal Association of South Carolina's Achievement Awards, a program that celebrates excellence in local government programs, shares the ideas with other cities and towns, and highlights their value to residents and businesses.

Municipalities with a population of 20,000 or less can choose to compete in either a population or subject category. Those greater than 20,000 may only compete in one of the five subject categories.

Cities participating in the subject categories must make an oral presentation to the judges on March 5 or 6 in Columbia at the Municipal Association's office. Association staff will assign presentation times after receiving all entries.

The Association will recognize award winners at the Annual Meeting Awards Breakfast held in Hilton Head Island on July 21, 2018.

The city-designated contact person for each entry will receive a receipt-confirmation email by February 21. For more information about the 2018 Achievement Awards, contact Meredith Houck at 803.933.1215 or mhouck@masc.sc.
