Municipal communicators play a valuable public service role in engaging residents. To do this well, you need to be creative, inspiring and results-focused. We seek to recognize those outstanding efforts through our awards program — designed and judged by your municipal communicator peers. The competition has eight government categories making entering at least one category possible for any community — no matter what size. In addition, there are two new member-driven categories. Details for each category are listed below. Winning an award from your peers tells your residents and your elected and appointed leaders that your work to increase engagement, communicate effectively and infuse creativity is among the best in the state. Best of luck!
