Deadline to enter Achievement Awards is February 14

The Municipal Association of South Carolina's Achievement Awards program recognizes excellence in local government programs, shares ideas among peers, and reminds residents and businesses of the value they derive from their city or town.

The awards entry form is available online. The submission deadline for the 2018 awards program is February 14. The city-designated contact person for each entry will receive a receipt-confirmation email by February 21.

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

As part of the competition, 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 on July 21, 2018.
