National Civic League Invites Entries for All-America City Award
Deadline: March 11, 2004

A program of the National Civic League (<a href=""></a>), the All-America-City Award seeks to recognize exceptional grassroots community problem-solving and communities that work cooperatively to tackle challenges and achieve results. The award honors communities of all sizes in which citizens, government, businesses, and volunteer organizations work together to address critical local issues.

The National Civic League is now accepting applications for the 2004 award. Cities, towns, neighborhoods, counties, and regions are encouraged to apply.

Award criteria include participation of the public, private, and nonprofit sectors and key constituencies to the maximum extent possible; recognition and involvement of diverse segments and perspectives (ethnic, racial, socioeconomic, age, etc.) in community decision-making; creative use and leveraging of community resources; significant and specific community achievements; projects that address the community’s most important needs; cooperation across jurisdictional boundaries; clear demonstration of results and impacts; and projects that have impacted the community significantly within the last three years and have potential to continue improving the quality of life in that community. In addition, at least one project should document ways in which the lives of children and youth have been tangibly improved.

For more information or to request an application form, see the NCL Web site.
