Dear VACo Members –

It’s time for the 2018 Achievement Awards Program. Any county department is eligible to compete so ENTER NOW!

All entries are required to be submitted in electronic form. No paper copy submissions are necessary. The electronic copy should be a PDF or WORD file. Email entries to Gage Harter at gharter@vaco.org. Submissions must be received by June 1.

Last year we processed 79 entries and selected 17 winners from 9 counties. VACo presented awards at 9 Board of Supervisors Meetings and recognized winners at the Annual Conference, in a news release sent to statewide media and in an Achievement Awards booklet.

The judges for the 2018 Achievement Awards will be announced soon.

VACo has received nearly 600 entries over the past nine competitions. Last year’s Best Achievement winner was York County for its “Home-Based Business Assistance” program.

VACo encourages all counties, big and small, to enter the 2018 Achievement Awards Program. Please contact gharter@vaco.org with questions or for more information.
