Communications Staff Garners Honors
Every year, the Minnesota Association of Government Communicators, a statewide non-profit composed of communications and community engagement staff from all government organizations within the state, holds the Northern Lights Awards to honor special achievements in a range of categories.
Out-of-state judges score all entry submissions and choose to recognize winning entries in one of four award categories: merit, bronze, silver, and Northern Lights. The bronze, silver, and Northern Lights awards go to one entry in each category while the merit awards may go to multiple submissions. In 2022, the City of Columbia Heights earned four MAGC awards.
