Initiatives to increase the public’s awareness of government operations, strengthen community ties and provide useful information and services to citizens deserve to be high- lighted. The purpose of this contest is to promote the use of successful and innovative techniques that increase government’s ability to meet citizen needs and improve access to government services.
The contest sponsors hope this will create interest and provide incentive for municipalities to develop or enhance their public information programs in order to be able to offer more innovative, responsive and personalized services to citizens.
