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 1999-2000.
