Community Excellence Award Race for the Cup

About the Award

2009 Community Excellence Award Cup Winner

The League recognizes innovative solutions through the peer-nominated Community Excellence Award, a spirited competition we affectionately call “The Race for the Cup.”

How it Works

Competitors are given five minutes to present at their respective Region Seminar. Following the presentations, candidates are reviewed and scored by the seminar attendees and the winner (for that region) is announced.

The seven region finalists go on to represent their community in the final round at the League’s Annual Convention, where votes from every attendee are counted, and the winner is announced at the Convention’s final event.

Does Your Community Have What it Takes?

Enter your community in the Race for the Cup if you answer YES to the following questions:
- Does your community have an innovative local success story, program, or project?*
- Did this project have a positive impact on your community?
- Could another community adapt this project to meet a similar challenge?

Entry Process . . . 

1.) Register
Register for your Regional Meeting and mark “yes” to enter the Community Excellence Awards and complete the entry form. 

2.) Prepare a 5 Minute Presentation
