Great Places in Wisconsin


2018 Great Places in Wisconsin and Chapter Awards

The Great Places in Wisconsin award solicitation was distributed in May and were due at the end of June. 

The Chapter Awards are solicited in mid-June with the deadline in mid-July.  After nominations are received, a panel of planners from another state chapter serve as jurors and score each submission on the specific criteria for the award. 

The 2018 award recipients will be notified in September.  Award recipients are honored at the APA-Wisconsin fall conference, held October 8-9 in Madison this year.

If you missed the deadline, now is a good time to start preparing your submission for the 2019 call for nominations. See all Categories and Criteria for more information.
