All American City Awards Ceremony

The 2023 All-America City Awards

The 2023 All-America City Awards will be held in Denver, CO from June 9-11, 2023. Communities named as finalists will be encouraged to assemble teams of residents, nonprofits, businesses, government leaders, young people, etc. to present their  efforts around the year’s theme, “Creating Thriving Communities through Youth Engagement.”

During the event, these teams connect and share insights with peers, learn from national thought-leaders, and present the story of their work to a jury of nationally recognized civic leaders. The transformational experience equips, inspires and supports leaders and communities to achieve more than they ever believed possible.

  • The event includes workshops, panel discussions, peer learning opportunities,  and community presentations to a jury of national experts.
  • Workshops include expert and practitioner panels, and a dedicated peer learning time to learn the details of finalists projects to take back to your community.
  • Communities have the opportunity to show the flavor of their city during the Civic Action Fair and the Cultural Entertainment Showcase.

If you want new ideas or if you think you are at the end of the rope you should be sure to attend the All-America City awards.Mandy Pitts, Communications Director, City of Hickory, NC
