2018 Achievement Awards entry form online in December

Started in 1987, the Achievement Awards give cities and towns the opportunity to receive deserved recognition for successful and innovative projects that improve the quality of life for residents and add value to their communities.

The 2018 Achievement Awards entry form will be available on December 15.

The Achievement Awards application has been revamped to provide an easy-to-use online form to highlight a project's key points. Judges will look for projects that show innovation and efficient use of resources, effective partnerships and adaptability to other hometowns.

The submission deadline is February 14. The main contact person and mayor for each city that enters will receive an email confirmation from the Association once the application has been successfully submitted.
