2017 Achievement Awards deadline: February 15, 2017

​The 2017 Achievement Awards submission deadline is February 15. Mailed entries must be postmarked by February 15.

The online application provides an easy-to-use format to highlight a project's key points. Judges will look for projects that show effective partnerships, innovation, adaptability to other hometowns, efficient use of resources and quantifiable results.

Municipalities with a population of 20,000 or less may participate in a population or subject category. Those with a population greater than 20,000 can only compete in a subject category.

For cities and towns entering by population category, only a written entry is required. For those entering a subject category, judges will evaluate a written entry and an oral presentation, scheduled for March 6 and 7.

Award winners will be recognized at the Annual Meeting Awards Breakfast held on Hilton Head Island on Saturday, July 22.
