2018 CIVIC IMPACT AWARD NOMINATIONS
We started the Civic Impact Awards in 2015 to shed light on the work of dedicated and effective leaders in Atlanta. They are a reminder that amazing things are happening in our city every day. Do you know a person, organization or business doing what it takes to really move the needle on some of our cities toughest issues? Click here to nominate them for a civic impact award!
This award goes to an individual or organization that is bringing attention to an issue of inequality and making Atlanta smarter in the way it understands and addresses that issue. This person or organization educates the public about an issue in a unique way and makes sure that information about that issue gets to as many people as possible. This could be the leader of a campaign or a movement.
Investing in Impact Award
This award goes to an individual or organization that is opening up capital and additional support for community-driven work. This investor is thinking differently and investing not just in the same old same, but instead in innovative ideas that create better outcomes for people.
Government Innovation Award
This award goes to a city, county, or state government or quasi-government agency serving Atlanta that thinks outside the box in its role of serving the public. This government agency uses its power to grow and scale its impact. They represent the good in government and public policy work.
