The Center for Civic Innovation is a community of people who love Atlanta and are fighting for better policies, stronger civic engagement, and an Atlanta that is built for everyone. We started the Civic Impact Awards in 2015 to shed light on the leaders who are doin' the work and to remind people that amazing things are happening in our city every day.
We're thrilled to announce that this year, we're bringing back the Atlanta Civic Impact Awards, and we are now accepting nominations!
Do you know an organization doing what it takes to really move the needle on some of our cities' toughest issues?
We are accepting nominations for the 2019 Civic Impact Awards in the following categories:
Investing in Impact: this award is for a foundation, corporation, or philanthropic organization that invested dollars into a project or program that moved the needle forward on advancing a new or more effective approach to solving a systems-level challenge in Atlanta.
Government Innovation Award: This award is for a government or quasi-government agency that executed a new or more effective program and/or policy to increase public participation or advance a new approach to solving a systems-level challenge in Atlanta.
Community Engagement Award: This award is for an organization, formal or informal, that executed a program or service to increase how people are informed and/or engaged in local decision-making
Please note that all three of these award categories are organizational, and not intended for individual nominations.
To make your nomination, simply click "Start" and fill out the form. We will follow up with all nominees on a one-on-one basis, and our finalists will be invited to attend the 2019 Civic Impact Awards on Thursday, December 12th at The Masquerade.
