The towns of Tisbury, Littleton and Chelmsford were three of the nine winners in the 2019 contest.

The MMA is now accepting entries for the Annual Town Report Contest.

First-, second- and third-place winners will be selected from each of three population categories: less than 5,000; 5,001-15,000; and 15,000-plus. Winners will be recognized and given a certificate during the MMA’s 2022 Annual Meeting & Trade Show in January.

Judging criteria include:
• Attractiveness of report cover and layout
• Material arrangement
• Presentation of statistics and data
• Summary of the year’s achievements
• Evidence of local planning for the future
• Practical utility of report

Each entry will be reviewed by two judges, chosen based on their expertise in the field and their ability to remain impartial.

To enter electronically, please complete the form on the MMA website with a link to, or a PDF of, the town report. Or, send two copies of your town’s 2020 report to: Town Report Contest, Massachusetts Municipal Association, 3 Center Plaza, Suite 610, Boston, MA 02108.

Entries are due by Friday, Oct. 1.
