Winners of the Successful Communities Contest

CM_logo-200pxNCDD would like to join our partners with CommunityMatters in congratulating the winners of the Successful Communities contest!  The contest encouraged local groups to create projects to improve their communities, and awarded $500 to four winning communities, and the winners were recently declared:

Last month, CommunityMatters asked people to come together, listen to our August call on the Secrets to Successful Communities with Ed McMahon, then decide on one completely achievable action for making their community more successful. To sweeten the deal, the Orton Family Foundation offered $500 to four communities that came up with an idea or strategy for success. Sixteen of the 17 parties came up with a next step for taking action.

Public voting helped us select the following four entries to win $500. Congratulations to Discover Downtown Middlesboro, Upstream Arts Collective, the Medfield Cultural District, and Old Time Ozark Traditions! We’ll keep an eye on these projects over the coming months and share their progress with yo

We encourage you to learn out more about the winning projects here on the Community Matters blog, and check out the Successful Communities Gallery by clicking here. Congratulations again to the winning communities: Middlesboro, KY, Silverton, OR, Medfield, MA, and Mountain View, AR! Here’s hoping your projects continue to grow and improve you communities!
