Community Pacesetter Award

STC’s Community Pacesetter Award recognizes innovative and successful community initiatives.

Unlike STC’s other Community Achievement awards, which recognize communities for consistent strength in many varied activities, the Pacesetter Award recognizes the successful implementation of a single beneficial innovation that may be implemented by other STC communities.

The Community Pacesetter Awards are presented at STC Summit the year after the award was earned. The award reflects the year the award is presented, e.g. the 2021 award is for work completed in 2020.

Applications are due: 31 January 2021.  

Committee Chair: Alison Phillips
