I was notified this week that the City of Kent and Kent State University have been selected as finalists for a Greater Ohio Policy Center Award.
There’s some impressive cities on the list of award finalists so we’re honored to be included in the mix.
The award winners will be announced at the Greater Ohio Policy Conference scheduled for next week (June 9th, 10th) in Columbus.
According to their web site, the Greater Ohio Sustainable Development Awards “recognize individuals and entities working to create vibrant and sustainable communities, cities, and regions in Ohio. These awards honor tenacious and visionary public leaders, private sector partners invested in comprehensive solutions to economic growth, and creative and nimble non-profits. Greater Ohio Policy Center believes these efforts and their leaders are moving Ohio towards a more sustainable and prosperous future.”
The City of Kent and Kent State University were nominated in the category of “Catalytic Partnerships” — which seems a very appropriate description for the work we’ve been doing so we’re hoping to come out on top in that category.
Win or lose, it’s great to hear Kent’s name come up around the State as a community that is doing good work and is becoming a model for sustainable development.
Here’s Kent’s award category and other finalists:
