Dear VACo Members

It’s time for the 2016 Achievement Awards Program. Any county department is eligible to compete so ENTER NOW!

Submissions must be received by June 1.

Last year we processed a record 92 entries and selected 34 winners from 20 counties. VACo presented awards at 19 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.

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.

The judges for the 2016 Achievement Awards will be announced soon.

VACo received more than 400 entries over the past seven competitions. Last year’s Best Achievement winner was Carroll County for its “STEM Lab for Agriculture” program.

VACo encourages all counties, big and small, to enter the 2016 Achievement Awards Program. Please contact gharter@vaco.org with questions or for more information.
