The 2016 Community & Youth
Project Judging is Complete

MCB Judging & Awards Completed for 2016 
Each year MCB Communities have an opportunity to submit projects they have completed for judging in our Annual MCB Community Awards & Judging.  Communities are judged on what they are able to accomplish with the resources they have available. In order to compete in the MCB Community Awards and Judging and to be eligible for other awards through the MCB program, communities and neighborhoods must submit a Project Report for each project they are submitting.  Each community can submit up to 5 community projects and 2 youth projects annually. 
Communities who participate in the judging are allotted an opportunity to share their accomplishments while providing valuable information for others.  Communities are divided into categories according to population and two judges visit each community for approximately two hours. 
The winners in each category and the Grand Prize Community & Youth winners are announced at the Annual MCB Fall Banquet.  visit our website for additional information or contact Teresa Keller
