About the Jury

Selection Process: 

The CCNC Awards Program promotes a principled and effective adjudication process. A volunteer peer jury conducts a review of all submissions and selects the successful candidates. The recipients are celebrated at the CCNC’s annual summit. The jury may decide not to bestow an award in any given year. The current standing CCNC Board of Directors, and by extension their municipalities, are not eligible to serve on the Awards Program Jury.
