Voices. Knowledge. Solutions.

​The Association recognizes and encourages innovations and excellence in local government through its Achievement Awards. 

Each spring, the Municipal Association accepts award entries from member municipalities. Winners will be honored at the Association's Annual Meeting.

Started in 1987, the program provides local government officials and employees the opportunity to receive deserved recognition for superior and innovative efforts in local government. The program also provides a forum for sharing the best public service ideas in South Carolina.
