Applications for NACo’s 2012 Achievement Award program are now available. The annual program is non-competitive and recognizes innovative county government programs. Since this is not a competition, each submission is judged on its own merits based on the criteria outlined in the application information.
Last year, more than 470 programs were recognized from 97 counties in 29 states.
This year’s application process moves to an all-electronic format. Applicants must submit each program narrative and any supplemental materials through the online application system. This new process eliminates the time and costs associated with mailing application materials.
To guide applicants through the process, there is a Frequently Asked Questions document and a video tutorial of the application process on the Achievement Awards page of the NACo website, http://www.naco.org/achievementawards.
All application materials must be uploaded by Feb. 13, 2012.
