MAP PROGRAM WINS THREE AWARDS AT THE NEIGHBORHOODS, USA (NUSA) CONFERENCE!

This past week, Monrovia was well represented at the 2016 Neighborhoods USA (NUSA) annual conference, where elements of the City’s overall Monrovia Area Partnership (MAP) program were considered for nationwide awards, including our Care for your Neighbor program, our MAP Youth Leadership Academy, and our MAP Neighborhood Newsletter. Even when facing stiff competition from programs that stretched across the nation, the MAP program shined as we won the following awards: 1st Place – MAP Neighborhood Newsletter (Newsletter Competition)2nd Place – Care for your Neighbor Program (Physical Revitalization / Beautification) 2nd Place – MAP Youth Leadership Academy (Social Revitalization / Neighborliness)
 As the photos attached and below illustrate, our team represented Monrovia so very well, and the awards that were won demonstrate how truly exceptional the MAP program is! None of this would be possible if not for the participation of all of you in our programs, thank YOU for always supporting and being a part of MAP!
 Part of what we had to do was present our programs and let them know all of what we do. In our presentations, we included videos on our programs, so the judges could hear from some of you.
