Recognizing Excellence in Local Government Organizations

Cartegraph’s High-Performance Government Awards celebrate the most forward-thinking, efficient organizations in local government. Through the use of modern technology, these organizations are finding ways to solve problems, work smarter, and improve their communities.

In 2017, did your organization...
  • Use data to make an informed decision or come up with a plan?
  • Streamline a process to become more efficient?
  • Take steps to be proactive instead of reactive?
  • Solve a specific problem using Cartegraph?
  • Engage citizens through technology?

If you nodded your head to any of those questions, you should nominate your organization for a 2017-2018 High-Performance Government Award.

Nominations are due on or before March 14, 2018, and winners will be announced in late spring.

In addition to receiving an award (and earning epic bragging rights), winners will have their story celebrated on the Cartegraph website and in marketing materials.

Thank you for your interest in the Cartegraph High-Performance Government Awards.

Nominations for the 2017-2018 season are now closed. Please stay tuned for the winners to be announced in late spring!
