During the past four years, CivicCon had been hosted a whole host of speakers, leaders and thinkers whose ideas have been shaped to the way we plan, build and live in the America’s cities.

But beyond those who are here to bring us knowledge are the many people who have taken those CivicCon ideas seriously and made them real too, creating meaningful change and some better places to live, work and grow in our own streets, neighborhoods and various city halls.

On Monday, CivicCon had recognized and honored those community members in a free service, open-to-all event from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The event had featured an awards program to honor the first CivicCon Award winners as an appetizer buffet and holiday cheer.

It will be held in the Studer Community Institute building at 220 W. Garden St., in the first-floor atrium.

“CivicCon believes all residents should look at themselves as a community developers,” said Executive Director Terry Horne.
