The Race for the Cup
Every year, this peer-nominated competition recognizes transformational ideas and innovative solutions created by Michigan communities. Increasingly, these local success stories are place-based projects and initiatives that are having a profound socioeconomic impact in each of the state’s seven regions.
The Community Excellence Award (CEA) is the League’s most prestigious community award. It is your opportunity to highlight local success stories and best practices, and to share innovative community programs or projects on a statewide platform. Has your community led or supported a program or project that had a significant positive impact? Could another community adapt this project to meet a similar challenge? If so, share it with your peers! Michigan communities all benefit through learning about each others’ success.
Your community could be the next winner in this spirited, peer-nominated competition!
Step 1: Attend Your Regional Roundtable!
Step 2: Make Your Pitch!
Regional winners will then compete at our Annual Convention. This is the time to pull out all the stops! Each competitor will have seven minutes on the main stage, and typically prepare videos and/or PowerPoint presentations for that venue.
Step 3: Voting
Applauding innovation—it’s one more way the League is “passionately and aggressively pushing change for better communities.”
So are you ready to Race for the Cup?
