Publications to recognize community broadband intitiatives with Network Community Impact awards

America's Network announced it will present Network Community Impact awards to communities with noteworthy community broadband initiatives:

"Such projects may be spearheaded by independent telcos, by municipalities, or by other local leaders. Recognizing those people-and the projects that they have created-is the goal of the America's Network Community Impact awards."

"Modern telecommunications infrastructure can play a critical role in revitalizing the economy of an underserved community. For many rural and urban areas, broadband connectivity-often coupled with an underutilized labor pool and low rents-can be the hook that attracts new businesses or business initiatives, creating jobs and breathing new life into a community."

"Nominations will be judged on innovativeness and on the positive impact that a project had on a community. The most compelling projects will be selected by a panel of editors and telecom and economic development experts, and will be profiled in the November 1, 2003, issue of America's Network. Anyone can make a nomination. The only requirement is that the project was completed no earlier than 2000 and that it be in North America."

Nominations are due by September 22. The application form is simple and can be submitted on-line or by fax.
