Each year the Vermont Planners Association recognizes citizen planners, outstanding projects and professional planners. Nominations for awards will be requested for 2019.
About Our Awards
Our awards focus on the following categories.
- Project of the Year
- Plan of the Year
- Citizen Planner of the Year
- Citizen Planning Board, Commission or Committee of the Year
- Professional Planner of the Year
For more information about the criteria applied to nominees, go to the award criteria section.
We are especially looking for more plan and people nominations. All you professional planners must know a colleague that has been going above and beyond the call of duty. And we know that you work with exceptional volunteers. Please don’t feel shy about nominating your own plan – whether it is a town plan, regional plan, a visioning plan, a modal plan, etc. Once all nominations are received, the VPA Awards Committee sends the nominations to the New Hampshire Planners Association for review. NHPA provides their recommendations to the VPA Executive Committee for adoption. An awards ceremony for recipients will be held at the Vermont State House in April at a time to be announced. VPA awardees are forwarded to the Northern New England Chapter of the American Planners Association for consideration in August.
The Vermont Planners Association will accept nominations for the 2019 Awards competition in early 2019.
