Wisconsin Rural Partners
May 15, 2021

The Top Rural Development Initiative Awards recognize programs that exemplify positive community impacts, regional success stories, and/or demonstrate innovative ideas impacting communities in rural Wisconsin.

Initiatives can be in economic or community development, agriculture, business, education, health, energy, environment, philanthropy, tourism, the arts, or any other field.

Nominations will be reviewed based upon:

  • Does the project demonstrate partnership and collaboration as part of its success?
  • How widespread and long term are the community impacts?
  • How innovative is the project?
  • Could the initiative be used as a model for other communities in Wisconsin?

Anyone living in or serving rural Wisconsin can nominate an initiative. Any project, activity, or even a whole community in rural Wisconsin is eligible.
