Neighborhood Communications Award

About The Award
Many of our neighborhood groups get the word out, promote their organization and communicate with members through printed newsletters, brochures, flyers, new resident guides, etc. Additionally, in this age of technology, electronic communications such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, SnapChat, Neighborland, NextDoor, Vimeo and others will also be considered.

The Neighborhood Communications Award is intended to recognize excellence in quality and creativity in neighborhood-oriented publications and/or other neighborhood communication outreach activities.
