2016 Golden Prospector Awards

 

 Award Entry Deadline: Friday, July 29th, 2016

  SUBMIT USING DROPBOX (bridgette@aaed.com)

The Golden Prospector awards were established by the Arizona Association for Economic Development (AAED) to encourage and recognize excellence in economic development.

 Eligibility

The 2016 Golden Prospector Awards is open to all AAED members in good standing. To be eligible, at least some part of the project must have occurred in 2015 and have been completed by April 30, 2016.

Judging Process

All entries are judged based on the criteria included in the entry guidelines and each entry will be judged by three judges. Entries receiving 90% or more of the total points available are eligible for a Golden Prospector; entries receiving 89% - 80% of total point available are eligible for an Award of Merit. The judges may award multiple winners or no winners, based on the total points and entries received. Judges reserve the right to move entries to alternative categories that they believe to be more appropriate. The decision of the judges is final. AAED reserves the right to exclude any entry for any reason.

All entries and support materials must be submitted on a flash drive, CD, or in a three-ring binder. The hard-copy entries (only available for the marketing brochure category) have a higher entry fee due to shipping charges.

Entry Fees:

  •  Electronic Entries: $65
  • Hard-Copy Entries: $75

Entries must be received, not postmarked, by 4 p.m. on Friday, July 29th, 2016.

No late entries will be accepted.

Finalists in each category will be notified shortly after the judging of the Golden Prospector entries, no later than August 21, 2016. From these finalists, Golden Prospector and Award of Merit recipients will be announced at the Golden Prospector Awards presentation at the Fall Forum September 7-9, 2016.
