[ARCHIVED] Danville’s All-America City presentation is Tuesday

A team of community representatives will make its final pitch on Tuesday morning for Danville being named an All-America City.

The presentation will begin at 11:25 a.m. Citizens can watch the presentation and cheer on the Danville team during a live stream on the Facebook page of the All-America City Awards.

Danville is one of 20 finalists.

The presentation will be made before a panel of national jurors from the National Civic League. Each year, the non-profit organization names 10 localities an All-America City for their work in tackling critical challenges. For 2020, communities were invited to showcase their work specifically on creating a healthy community for all, particularly populations experiencing poorer health outcomes.

Danville’s application for the All-America Awards highlighted three health equity efforts: the Fit Mobile program, the work of the Danville Youth Health Equity Leadership Institute (YHELI), and the Community Health Worker initiative.

For those efforts, Danville was named in March as a finalist.

Danville representatives were invited initially to Denver in June to compete for the award, but that event was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, Danville is joining finalists this week in a virtual conference, during which the cities will make final presentations.

On Wednesday, an award ceremony will be held virtually to announce the 10 winners.

The other finalists are Algoma, Wis.; Douglasville, Ga; El Paso, Texas; Mason City, Iowa; Franklin, Tenn.; Harlingen, Texas; Highland Park, Ill.; Hopkinsville, Ky.; Logansport, Ind.; Mason City, Iowa; Miami Gardens, Fla.; Muncie, Ind.; Pitt County, N.C.; Portsmouth, Ohio; Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.; Roanoke, Va.; Rochester, N.Y.; Sumter, S.C.; and Topeka, Kan.
