Annual Economic Development Awards Program

The Mid-America EDC invites you to participate in the Mid-America EDC Economic Development Awards program.  These awards recognize outstanding endeavors in development of marketing materials, marketing events and economic development efforts in our thirteen Mid-America region states.  Winners will be announced at the Mid-America Competitiveness Conference, December 4-6, 2024 in Columbus, Ohio.  Award recipients will be recognized on the Mid-America EDC website and through our social media outlets! Don’t miss this opportunity to highlight your organization’s achievements! Don’t miss this opportunity to highlight your organization’s achievements!  Entries will be accepted through August 23rd!  

Again this year:  We will again have three community population divisions to select from, in an effort to ensure the inclusion of our rural community successes!  AND, we have added an individual-recognition Economic Development Impact Award!

We are also again providing an additional submission option for your narrative portion.  If you would like, you may submit via video for online entries. This should not be a polished video, but is just you telling your story to a camera instead of providing the written narrative.  You may still provide additional background materials with your video narrative. And, you may still submit via written narrative, if that is your preference!  Just one additional format for submissions.
