This is it! Sarasota is in the All-America City Awards Spotlight Today.

June 15, 2013

Hundreds of miles away in Denver, a fabulous delegation from Sarasota will take the stage today to bring it home–our community is one of the finest places in the nation.

As one of only 20 finalists in the National Civic League’s All-America City Awards, Sarasota County has already given us much to be proud of. This prestigious national recognition is based on innovation, inclusiveness, civic engagement, and cross sector collaboration applied to local needs and issues.

After making it through an extremely competitive application process, each finalist community has 10 minutes to make a live, inspiring presentation in front of the judges. The diverse and accomplished team from Sarasota will represent us well. We hope they can feel our good vibes stretching across the states!

Want to watch them live?  Head over here and you can take a front seat to the action.

You have just a short while to make your “like” count in the 3-minute video contest by visiting the Sarasota Transcends video on YouTube.


Follow tweets from the delegation, including friends from the Sarasota County library system, The Patterson Foundation, the Herald-Tribune Media Group and others on #aacsrq and follow all of the All-America City action on Twitter at #AllAmericaCity.

To the Sarasota County team, we send our best wishes and want you to know our hearts and enthusiastic applause are with you!
