2017 Golden Prospector Awards

Award Entry Deadline EXTENDED: Friday, September 8th, 2017

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

Eligibility

The 2017 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 2016 and have been completed by April 30, 2017

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.
