Awards Nominations

Nomination Form

Through this nominations process, the Community Indicators Consortium seeks to recognize excellence in the field of community indicators by identifying efforts that use the power of indicators and data to drive change or individuals who have made or are making exceptional contributions to the field.

In keeping with the theme of our 2016 Impact Summit, we are particularly interested in projects or leaders who have used or are using data in innovative or interesting ways to support well-being and promote equitable, sustainable communities. 


Past winners are recognized in the Communities of Practice section.

Nominations will be reviewed by the Awards Committee who will propose the list of award winners for approval by the CIC Board of Directors.  

Winners will be recognized at the 2016 Impact Summit in Washington, DC.  

If you are interested in making a nomination under one of the following categories, please submit your nomination on or before April 22, 2016. 

Impact Awards

This work demonstrates the power of indicators and evidence to drive positive community change. Winning projects use data to analyze, communicate community conditions, engage citizens and policy makers and catalyze action for making measurable and sustainable improvements in quality of community life. 

Communities can be geographical, but can also be topical or demographic communities of shared interest. Projects can be hosted by non- or for-profit organizations, local government entities, foundations or academic or research institutions. The community may be large or small, but the impact of the use of indicators must be significant.
