DENVER, COLO. -- The National Civic League is proud to announce the finalists for the 2018 All-America City Award. These finalists represent the diversity of American communities from the largest cities to the smallest towns, from east to west and north to south.

Finalist communities include the 7th largest city in America and a town of only 22,000 people. The 20 finalists share a common bond of working to create equitable communities through inclusive civic engagement.

The award, given to 10 communities each year, celebrates and recognizes neighborhoods, villages, towns, cities, counties, tribes, and regions that engage residents in innovative, inclusive and effective efforts to tackle critical challenges.

"These finalist communities are building local capacity to solve problems and improve their quality of life," said National Civic League's President, Doug Linkhart. "The National Civic League is honored to recognize these communities, and views their efforts as critical in addressing the challenge to communities issued by the 1968 Kerner Commission, 'to make good the promises of American democracy to all citizens, urban and rural, white, black, Spanish surname, American Indians, and every minority group.'"
