VLCT is accepting nominations until June 15, 2023, for the three VLCT awards that recognize people who have provided outstanding service to Vermont local government. Officials and employees of Vermont cities, towns, and villages are encouraged to nominate a deserving person for any of this year's awards using the online form at the bottom of this page. While not every award has a recipient every year, these awards are presented every late September or early October at VLCT’s annual conference, Town Fair.
The Municipal Service Award is given to a Vermont municipal official who has shown an active commitment to strong local government, both within their community and beyond its borders, or to a person outside of local government who works to improve the governance and support of or service to Vermont cities, towns, and villages.
The Lifetime Achievement Award is given to a Vermont municipal official or employee who has dedicated their career to serving local government, both within their community and through service at a statewide level on a board, commission, or the Vermont League of Cities and Towns.
The Legislative Service Award is given to a member of the Vermont General Assembly who, through their service, has best shown an awareness of the issues facing local government and its capacity for self-governance and, through legislative action, has sought to solve those problems and provide local authority on a statewide basis.
