Staying true to its mission, KLC supports community innovation, effective leadership and quality governance with annual awards to cities and individuals that demonstrate outstanding commitment to municipal service. 

Enterprise Cities Awards
Each year, KLC recognizes outstanding projects and programs in Kentucky cities with the Enterprise Cities Awards in four population categories.  The awards are given to projects that demonstrate increased efficiency, innovation and overall benefit to the community, as well as the possibility of being adapted well in other cities.

Cities 2,501-5,000
Cities 5,001-14,999
Cities over 15,000
