Announcing the 2021 Community Achievement Award Winners

2021 STC Community Achievement Awards

Each year, the Community Achievement Awards recognize a Special Interest Group (SIG), professional, or student chapter’s outstanding accomplishments in achieving the Society’s goals through a wide range of programs and activities. Communities are awarded Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards. The Community Achievement 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.

This year, the Community Achievement Awards will be presented during the virtual STC Summit Leadership Program on Wednesday, 19 May, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. EDT. The winners will receive their Community Achievement Award certificates by mail.

The Community of the Year and Most Improved Community Awards will be announced at the virtual STC Summit Honors Event on Tuesday, 8 June, from noon to 1:00 p.m. EDT. You can view the details for the 2021 STC Summit here. Don’t forget to register for the Virtual Summit!
