The APA Orange Section hosts an annual awards program to recognize and celebrate great planning work throughout Orange County. The program honors innovative plans and projects, distinguished individuals and other contributions to the planning profession. The awards program depends on the active participation of our members. If you've been involved with or are aware of a recent noteworthy planning project or activity, please consider submitting a nomination. The awards program nominations are voted on by a panel of experienced judges who are dedicated to highlighting the projects, plans, and people that demonstrate the power of great planning. Award recipients will be recognized at the annual Awards Program on Thursday May 14, 2020. The evening will highlight the award winners and celebrate the wonderful work being done in Orange County to create more livable, vibrant, and inclusive communities.
