TARPON SPRINGS - Tarpon Springs has been selected as a finalist for the 2014 All America Cities Award, the country’s most prestigious award for outstanding, community-based civic accomplishments. Tarpon Springs is one of 25 finalists selected from across the nation to participate in the June 13-15 awards event in Denver.

“This is a tremendous recognition for our city, our residents and our businesses,” said Tarpon Springs Mayor David Archie. “Being named a finalist is a tribute to the power of citizens working together to make Tarpon Springs a better place, and I am so proud of our city for its accomplishments.”

This year’s awards have a special focus on successful efforts to address the underlying conditions that affect the health of communities. As part of the National Civic League’s celebration of the 25th anniversary of the U.S. Healthy Communities movement, the All-America City Award will spotlight programs that address issues such as obesity, walkable cities, biking, fitness, healthy eating and disease prevention.

“All-America city finalists are at the forefront of a nationwide movement to find inventive, community-based solutions to the issues that face our cities,” said National Civic League Board Chair Mayor Michael B. Hancock of Denver. “From preparing our kids to compete and succeed in the 21st century to promoting livable neighborhood revitalization, new ideas often start in one community and later become best practices for others.”

Communities vying for All-Americas City status filled out applications listing three examples of successful community change and describing their capacities for civic engagement, collaboration, inclusiveness and innovation. They then present to a jury of civic experts who select the annual award winners. The 2014 All-America Cities will be announced June 15 at an awards celebration.
