Please consider nominating an exceptional local official or legislator for one of VLCT’s annual awards: Municipal Service, Legislative Service, or Lifetime Achievement. Recognition of VLCT’s 2016 Awards Program winners will be on October 6, 2016, the second day of Town Fair, at the Champlain Valley Fairgrounds in Essex Junction, Vermont. The deadline to submit them to the VLCT office is Friday, August 26, 2016.


The MUNICIPAL SERVICE AWARD is given to an elected or appointed municipal official who has shown an active commitment to strong local government beyond the borders of his or her community – such as service to the Vermont League of Cities and Towns – and has also demonstrated a commitment to his or her municipality by serving on a board or commission.

The LEGISLATIVE SERVICE AWARD recognizes a member of the Vermont General Assembly who, through his or her service, has best shown an awareness of the problems facing local government and its capacity for self-governance, and has sought to solve those problems and provide local authority on a statewide basis through legislative action.

From time to time, we present the LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD to a municipal official or employee who has dedicated his or her career to serving local government both within his or her own community and through service at a statewide level on boards, commissions, or the Vermont League of Cities and Towns.
