The Community Achievement Awards are presented each year at the LMA Annual to municipalities that had outstanding projects promoting progress in municipal services during the past calendar year. Municipalities are eligible to compete in four populations tiers from 3,000 and under, 3001-10,000, 10,001-25000, and 25,001 and over.

Each entry must be within one of the three categories:
- Basics Services (water, sewer, streets, municipal buildings, etc.)
- Community Development (public transportation, main street improvements, public building, parks and recreation, etc.)
- Economic Development (industrial parks, tourism, community promotion, workforce development, and etc.)
All Community Achievement Award applications are to be submitted to Nikki Samrow, Events Director by the June 14, 2018 deadline.
