Results are what count, awards just sit on shelves. But, ten years years down the road, the results may have faded- but that award is still sitting on your shelf!  So there is a certain sense of accomplishment when Tuttle can tell Pettibone to "Go kiss a duck!  We won the Main Street Excellence Award!"   Which Tuttle did. (granted it was a four way tie in 2018)

Not a problem right? Your town could run the table in 2020. You should print this document right now so you can get started with your city's strategy.  You think Milnor just fell into it's Main Street Excellence Award?  Or that Mandan's P.R. machine wasn't running on all cylinders to nab the Legendary Heritage Award?

Pingree, I'm talking to you.
