What's your favorite thing about your town? Is it a beautiful Main Street with all the best shops and restaurants? Maybe a fun park where you enjoy playing with your kids? Or is it the people in your community — your neighbors, local leaders and business owners?

We want to hear about what makes your town great in our Strongest Town Contest! This is the third time we're hosting the competition and over the years, we've gotten to know so many fantastic communities — from tiny tourist villages to big, bustling cities. 

In this bracket-based competition, towns from around the world showcase their local businesses, citizen involvement, financial solvency and other features, based on Strong Towns' mission and principles. They'll face off in a series of different rounds and get voted on by Strong Towns readers and members. By the end of March, we'll have our winner — who will receive a visit from Strong Towns President Charles Marohn to celebrate the victory and share the Strong Towns message.

So what are you waiting for? Nominate your town for the contest today.

Nominations are due by February 25. Learn more about the rules and contest process here.
