The All-America City awards are an awards ceremony and networking event unlike any other! Through concrete examples, interactive discussions, and finalist presentations – you will walk away with the knowledge, skills, contacts, and inspiration you need to better strengthen your community.
The award, given to 10 communities each year, celebrates and recognizes neighborhoods, villages, towns, cities, counties, tribes and regions that engage residents in innovative, inclusive and effective efforts to tackle critical challenges.
This year’s finalist communities have managed the compounding difficulties of the
past year, all while building equity and resilience. Their accomplishments are a testament to what can be achieved when government, residents, businesses
and other stakeholders collaborate.”- The National Civic League’s President, Doug Linkhart
