Are you a school, city, township, or county that has been innovating to improve services or reduce the cost of local government? If so, share your innovation for a chance to win $5,000 and a professional video highlighting your effort!
The Local Government Innovation Awards—sponsored in partnership between the Humphrey School’s Public and Nonprofit Leadership Center, the Association of Minnesota Counties, the League of Minnesota Cities, the Minnesota Association of Townships and the Minnesota School Board Association—recognize the creative ways counties, cities, townships and schools are making Minnesota better and doing things differently. All types of local government innovation are encouraged to enter. Through a partnership with the University's Center for Integrative Leadership this year, the Awards are particularly interested in surfacing innovations involving cross-sector or cross-systems collaborations.
This year up to 20 local government entities will be recognized as award winners for their innovative work. The winner in each of the four categories will also receive a professional video highlighting their innovation work and a $5,000 grant from the Bush Foundation to continue local government innovation and redesign work.
LGIA will begin accepting entries next Monday, September 16. Learn more here!
