Public participation is based on the belief that those who are affected by a decision have a right to be involved in the decision - making process.
Each year, IAP2 Affiliates around the world recognize leaders in the profession through the IAP2 Core Values Awards. The awards go to projects and organizations which best demonstrate IAP2's Core Values and help to raise the bar in the field of public engagement by sharing best practices and inspiring the P2 community to learn from one another. As a friendly competition, the Core Values Awards encourage new approaches and innovative uses of existing ones. The 2017 winning entries will be recognized at the 2017 IAP2 North American Conference in Denver, Colorado.
General Project Award – This award will be given to the project that best reflects excellence in the tools, techniques and efforts in public participation and demonstrates the use of all the Core Values within a defined project.
IAP2 USA also offers three National Awards, which will move on to compete internationally at the IAP2 Federation Core Values Awards:
Project of the Year Award
The winners in each category of the Awards will be announced at the Core Values Awards Gala Dinner at the 2017 IAP2 North American Conference in Denver, Colorado on Thursday, September 7, 2017. The International Awards are to be judged in August and the winners will be announced in the fall.
