Davie County is All-American!

Davie County, NC has been named an All-America County by the National Civic League. Davie County was one of 20 communities selected as finalists from across the country to compete for this prestigious award in Denver, Colorado.

The National Civic League’s All-America City Award has celebrated the best in American civic innovation since 1949. Although the award is called All-America City, it is actually a competitive forum of best practices open to cities, counties, tribes, and community organizations of all types.

With a 2023 theme of “Creating Thriving Communities through Youth Engagement,” the All-America City designation seemed attainable for Davie County!

The 2023 award sought to identify communities that are breaking down barriers to meaningful youth participation and enacting programs that will improve the quality of life for youth and, by extension, all members of the community. Davie County’s application focused on youth programs that build the civic capacity of young people, increase job readiness and employment opportunities and provide leadership opportunities.

Thanks to the investment in post-secondary education of all students to increase job readiness, the IGNITE DAVIE College Promise set our community apart and helped drive home the WIN!
