Strong Cities, Great State logoSeeking nominations for AWC’s legislative City Champion Award!
Did your legislator do great things not only for your city, but for all cities throughout the state? Did they sponsor or sign on to a bill that made cities stronger? Did they speak up publicly in support of city issues?

If your legislator did at least two of these things this past session, nominate them for AWC’s 2017 City Champion Award! Winners will be selected in late August and recognized with press releases and in-district presentations early this fall.

For the past three years, we’ve recognized and honored at least one legislator from each of the four caucuses for their work to support cities. See a list of past recipients here. Send your nominations with a short explanation of your reasoning to Dave Williams by August 18.
