Digital Cities Awards Presented in Seattle



November 19, 2013 By

SEATTLE -- The 13th annual Digital Cities Awards program – held Nov. 15 in Seattle during the National League of Cities annual conference – was a celebration of all the hard work that city CIOs, executives, elected officials and staff invested in making their cities and towns better places in which to live and work. It was especially significant in that cities are only just beginning to emerge from recession-driven budget cuts, staff reductions and other hardships.

Todd Sander, executive director of the Center for Digital Government and moderator of this year's awards program, highlighted some of the accomplishments of award-winners including public Wi-Fi and broadband, open data, better transparency, 311 applications, and much more.

Here are links to past winners and a more detailed story of  this year's survey and first place winners.

The 2013 survey and awards event were underwritten by Accela, AT&T and NIC.
