The 2018 All-America City application will be released Thursday February 16th, sign up here to receive the application. In 2018, the All-America City Award will recognize ten communities for their inclusive engagement processes, projects and community vision. The essence of the application is a description of three community projects with a clear community-wide commitment to inclusiveness, equity, impact, innovation, civic engagement and cross-sector collaboration. Applications are encouraged to include at least one project focused on the 2018 highlighted topic - inclusive engagement practices that promote equity.
Leading up to the 2018 event, NCL will be hosting a monthly AAC Promising Practices Webinar series to share successful projects from around the country with speakers from cities implementing creative strategies for civic engagement.
