Town Report Contest information

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Entries for the MMA’s Annual Town Report Contest are due on September 15.

First-, second-, and third-place winners are selected in each of three categories based on population: less than 5,000; 5,000-12,499; and 12,500-plus.

Winners will be recognized and given a plaque during an awards ceremony at the MMA’s 2017 Annual Meeting & Trade Show in January.

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

Judging criteria include attractiveness of the report cover and layout; material arrangement; presentation of statistics and data; summary of the year’s achievements; evidence of local planning for the future; and the report’s practical utility.

To enter, send two copies of your 2015 town report to: Town Report Contest, MMA, One Winthrop Square, Boston, MA 02110. (Two copies are required so that each judge may review the publication independently.)
