Community Achievement Awards 2016 – Apply Now!

The application deadline for submitting the Community Achievement Award application is 27 January.

The application has been totally revamped and revitalized. In response to feedback received after its initial release back in April, revisions were made and it was re-released in September. If you haven’t had a chance to take a look at the new application and guidelines, please check it out. We’ve made it easier to apply and are hoping that all communities will participate this year.

For complete information, see the Community Achievement Award page on the web site.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have already started working on the application, please make sure you have the most current one (if the Community Information page lists four award levels, then you have the correct version).

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact MK Grueneberg directly at:
