We’re thrilled to share that the Civic Tech Field Guide has been selected as a finalist in the Civvys. What are the Civvys, you ask? Good question!
The American Civic Collaboration Awards, or the Civvys, are the only national awards program dedicated to celebrating projects that emphasize working together across divides of all kinds – political, geographical, economic, cultural – to strengthen communities and empower citizens. By leveraging collaboration as a core strength, these initiatives put community and nation before party, ideology, and narrow interests, embodying a civic spirit that inspires other Americans to take action, and developing processes and tools that provide a model for best practices.
If you’re looking for the people who are making America work, who are answering the call to serve their nation and their neighbors through collaborative, creative efforts that inspire, unite and facilitate civic participation, look no further than the American Civic Collaboration Awards (“Civvys”) nominees.
Developed by the Bridge Alliance Education Fund, Big Tent Nation, and the National Conference on Citizenship in 2017, the Civvys Awards are among the most high-profile and visible aspects of the civic renewal movement.
What happens next? The review committee will deliberate, and the winners will be announced at the National Conference on Citizenship in Washington, D.C this October.
