The APA-NC Awards Committee is proud to announce the winners of the 2018 Marvin Collins awards. The Marvin Collins Planning Awards program recognizes agencies and students who have completed outstanding plans, programs, and projects, or made notable contributions to the planning profession.

Each year the Awards Committee receives nominations in specific categories, which are then reviewed by a panel of independent planners representing eastern and western portions of the state. The awards signify the highest standards of achievement for planning in North Carolina. Recipients will be recognized at an awards luncheon on Thursday, September 13, 2018, at the APA-NC annual conference in Winston-Salem.
