CCS Partnership values interagency collaboration and promotes
recognition through each association’s award program as award
winners serve as useful examples of success stories for other
local agencies to emulate. The League’s Helen Putnam Award
Program includes a CCS Partnership Award for Intergovernmental
Collaboration and CSBA’s Golden Bell Awards includes a category
for Community Schools through Partnerships and Collaboration.
In 1999 CCS Partnership established the Community Partnership
Awards. These awards were given on a competitive basis with
communities invited to apply. A group of applicants were selected
to come to a conference with a team of their partners to present
their program to a panel of judges. The panel then selected
communities to receive the awards. Below is a list of communities
who received awards from CCS Partnerships in the time period of
