Promote Your Community as a Great Place to Grow Up

10/11/2006:   America's Promise--The Alliance for Youth is leading a national search for the 100 Best Communities for Young People. The 100 Best campaign will recognize communities for their innovative approaches and difference-making efforts in 2007.

Along with significantly increasing national and local media visibility, this award can help promote your community as a great place to grow up. It will contribute to civic pride and build greater support that could ensure the long-term success for your favorite youth-focused initiatives.

"Now is the time to reach out throughout America, to all of the communities of America, to gather in the best lessons that are out there, to gather in the energy that is out there, to give inspiration to ALL communities," says General Colin L. Powell, Founding Chair of America's Promise. "This competition creates energy rippling throughout our entire country to help every young person in America."

Applications will be accepted online through November 3, 2006. Winners will be announced in late January 2007.
