Due to the unprecedented closures and stay-at-home orders issued across the country to slow the COVID-19 pandemic, the CPWA NPWW Awards have been cancelled for 2020.
Though some communities are proceeding with scaled back and virtual NPWW activities, it will be difficult for municipalities and public works departments to conduct the kinds of events and activities that the CPWA NPWW Awards typically recognizes.
Now more than ever, it is critical to energize and educate the public about the importance of public works—planning, building, managing, and operating at the heart of local communities to improve quality of life each day. To that end, we've developed a Virtual NPWW How-To Guide, full of ideas that you can use to celebrate remotely with your communities. Don't forget to join in the fun on social media using the hashtag #NPWW!
We look forward to resuming the CPWA NPWW Awards to recognize and celebrate your efforts next year.
