Awards for Muncipal Excellence

The Awards for Municipal Excellence identify and showcase outstanding city and town programs that improve the quality of life in America?s communities.

Winners of this award exemplify excellence in city governance, best practices in municipal policy, and models to follow to improve the lives of their citizens.

The National League of Cities and CH2M HILL began a partnership in 1989 to recognize exceptional urban programs. The Awards began by honoring James C. Howland, co-founder of CH2M HILL, as the James C. Howland Awards for Urban Enrichment. In 2005, the sponsors changed the name to Awards for Municipal Excellence to reflect the rising standards that have been applied by judges in evaluating excellence and creativity in municipal programs over the years of the Awards.

Nominated programs are judged on several criteria: successful public-private partnership ventures; productive citizen and community collaborations; effective management of municipal resources (public or private); innovative government policies; project implementation with tangible results; and the ability to replicate the project in other cities.
