All-America City Award Finalists: Stewardship in Action

For over 70 years, the National Civic League has celebrated American civic innovation with the All-America City Award. Each year, ten communities are recognized for their ability to leverage civic engagement, inclusiveness, and innovation to successfully address challenges facing their communities. They serve as stewards of well-being by fostering dialogue and building collaboration to create strong connections among residents, businesses, and leaders. Learn more.


"These 10 communities showed how, through civic engagement and collaboration, they can tackle tough issues and create real change despite a myriad of challenges. Each of the winning communities demonstrated civic engagement practices that are inspirational, inclusive and promising in their ability to unite members of the community to collectively and collaboratively help solve our country’s most pressing and complex issues." --National League of Cities


The AAC finalists each provided a virtual community presentation to an awards jury panel, which then selected the winners. Community presentations included pre-recorded videos, virtual skits, music, spoken word, dancing and heartfelt stories to bring their projects and communities to life. Videos of all presentations can be found here


The All-America City Awards 2021 theme is Building Equitable and Resilient Communities and the application is available here.
