City of Acworth, Georgia - Winner of the 2010 All-America City Award!
The City of Acworth is pleased to announce that the Acworth Community has been selected as a 2010 All America City. The National Civic League’s All America City Award Competition was held June 16 through June 18 in Kansas City, Missouri where twenty five cities from across the nation competed for the coveted designation. The distinction of being chosen as an All America City is a prestigious honor for those communities that have demonstrated success in overcoming community challenges. The Acworth Community highlighted three programs where the government, business, non-profit, and faith based organizations came together to achieve a common goal. The three programs are the Expanding Horizons, Acworth Achievers, and the Horizon Field.
The delegation including youth, business, community leaders, and faith based leaders, local officials, presented a ten minute presentation before a juried panel of judges. Mayor Tommy Allegood stated, “This award is validation of what we already knew. The Acworth Community is indicative of the traits aligned with the All America City designation. Our community collectively accepts this prestigious award and is honored to be chosen as an All America City. We feel privileged for the opportunity to display our wonderful attributes and to hopefully to inspire other communities to follow suit. What a great day to be in Acworth, Georgia!”
The Acworth Community also walked away with the multi-media popular vote award for the video put together by Chris Boggess with Northstar Church. The video highlighted the successes of the Horizon Field. Acworth received more than 36,000 online votes! Allegood stated, “the support we received for the video from the Acworth Community and all over the state of Georgia was overwhelming!”
