The National Civic League is now accepting applications for the 2023 All-America City Award. Since 1949, the All-America City Award has recognized communities that leverage civic engagement, collaboration, inclusiveness, and innovation to successfully address local challenges.
The 2023 All-America City Award will recognize ten communities that are working to improve the lives of young people, with particular attention to efforts that engage young people in this work. Democracy thrives when all residents are active and engaged in the policies and decisions that shape their lives. In 2023, the National Civic League is seeking to identify communities that are breaking down barriers to meaningful youth participation and enacting programs that will improve quality of life for youth, and all residents, by extension.
Optional letters of intent to apply are due on December 15, 2022, and applications are due February 15, 2023. 20 finalists will be named in March of 2023 and will be invited to assemble a community team to present their work at the All-America City award event in Denver, CO from June 9-11, 2023.
