East Goshen Twp. Parks & Recreation, Chester County Finalist For National Gold Medal Award In Parks & Recreation
On May 26, the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration, in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association, announced the finalists for the 2020 National Gold Medal Awards for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management.
Among the finalists is East Goshen Township Parks and Recreation in West Chester, Chester County in the population less than 30,000 category.
This is a repeat performance. East Goshen Township Parks and Recreation was also named a finalist for this award in 2019.
Founded in 1965, the Gold Medal Awards program honors communities in the United States that demonstrate excellence in parks and recreation through long-range planning, resource management, volunteerism, environmental stewardship, program development, professional development and agency recognition.
The 2020 applications are separated into six classes, with five classes based on population and one class for armed forces.
Agencies are judged on their ability to address the needs of those they serve through the collective energies of community members, staff members and elected officials. Four finalists in each class are chosen to compete for grand honors each year.
This year’s finalists will compete for Grand Plaque Award honors this summer, and the six Grand Plaque recipients will be announced during the 2020 NRPA Conference, which will be held virtually in October.
The presentation of both the Finalist and Grand Plaque recipients is being finalized and details will be forthcoming on the virtual conference website.
Musco Lighting, LLC is proud to continue sponsoring the Gold Medal Awards program as it has for more than 20 years.
