CiCi Awards – 3rd Year!
 
We’re celebrating the 3rd anniversary for The Corporate Investment and Community Impact (CiCi) Awards and we are as excited this year as we were the first…or even more so.  Everyone likes to be recognized for a “job well done” – and corporations, states and communities are no different. 
 
After receiving over 1,000 submissions from across the nation, we had the grueling task of narrowing the list down to the Top 16 Corporate Investment projects and the Top 15 Community Impact projects.
