Final Week for Entries: Make Sure the World Knows About Your Strong Town


There are great publicity and community development benefits to entering this contest, but don’t forget there can be only one town or city to emerge victorious in our Seventh Annual Strongest Town Contest. It is, after all, a bracket-based showdown modeled after college basketball’s March Madness tournament. 

Strong Towns staff pick the original Sweet 16 from a pool of nominations provided by residents of the towns themselves, who fill out a short application. From there it’s in the hands of our members and readers who vote in the Elite 8, the Final Four and ultimately choose a Strongest Town 2022 champion. Will it be the town where you live? 

If you love your community—both for what it is and for what it aspires to be—you should nominate it for this year’s contest. Nominations are due February 20 at 11 p.m. CT…plenty of time to complete a great application.
