Yesterday, Bridge Alliance and Big Tent Nation, in partnership with the National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC), announced 23 outstanding finalists for the 2018 Civvy Awards, which you can view at www.civvys.org. This group of inspiring organizations and individuals are using collaborative action to move our country forward in civic and political life.
Finalists have been announced in 4 categories, highlighting projects with national, local, youth-focused and political impact. Civvys Awards winners and finalists will be celebrated in a ceremony during the NCoC’s 2018 Annual Conference on Citizenship: It’s Your Democracy in Washington, D.C. on October 17th and 18th.
And you can join us there! The National Conference on Citizenship has officially opened registration ($50 for students, $150 otherwise) for the Conference. In addition to having the chance to honor the Civvys winners, this is a tremendous opportunity to meet leaders in the democracy revitalization field and learn about the latest happenings across the country -- a number of Bridge Alliance organizations will be in attendance.
