All-America City Award


All-America City Award

The All-America City Award is given by the National Civic League annually to ten cities in the United States.

The award is the oldest community recognition program in the nation and recognizes communities whose citizens work together to identify and tackle community-wide challenges and achieve uncommon results.

Since the program's inception in 1949, more than 4,000 communities have competed and over 500 have been named "All-America Cities".
