The Municipal Association’s Achievement
Awards program gives cities and towns the chance to make headlines for the
good work they do in their hometowns.
The program recognizes excellence in local government programs, reminds
residents and businesses of the value they derive from the city or town where
they live, and allows city officials to share best practices with their peers.
A city or town can enter just one of the nine categories. Judges will
evaluate population category entries solely on the written application. They
will evaluate subject category entries on the written entry and an oral
presentation scheduled for March 2 or 3.
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 must
compete in a subject category.
The Association will post the online entry brochure on its website this month
and mail the printed version on December 15. The application deadline is
Wednesday, February 11.
