Our biennial awards programs honor outstanding planning and planning leadership in Ohio, recognizing the highest levels of achievement. This is an opportunity to highlight the best and brightest plans, projects, places and people in Ohio.
NEW! Beginning in 2023, the APA Ohio Planning Awards and the Great Places in Ohio program will join together. Separate nominations criteria and forms are still in place.
Nominations are being accepted for both programs NOW until July 14, 2023.
This biannual awards program recognizes individuals, organizations and communities for outstanding contributions to planning in Ohio. Any APA Ohio member may nominate plans, projects, programs, individuals or organizations in seven (7) categories.
Great Places in Ohio
Modeled after APA's Great Places in America program, the Great Places in Ohio awards program is a biannual selection of places that represent the gold standard in Ohio's neighborhoods, public spaces and commercial districts.
