Annual Economic Development Awards Program



Annual Economic Development Awards


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, November 29 - December 1 in Indianapolis, Indiana.  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!  Entries will be accepted through August 25th! 

New this year!  We will now have three community population divisions to select from, in an effort to ensure the inclusion of our rural community successes! 

And, again this year, we are providing an additional submission option for your narrative portion.  If you would like, you may submit via video for online entries!
