The APA-Minnesota Chapter Planning Awards provide an exciting opportunity to give credit to outstanding projects and people who have contributed to the planning profession over the last year. The award process provides an opportunity to share the exciting work you and your co-workers and partners have completed with our planning peers.

It’s time to celebrate the great work we do here in Minnesota! The conference is in person in St. Cloud, MN at the River's Edge Convention Center.

The awards dinner will be held on Thursday, Oct 5, 2023 where all awards will be distributed. 

Winners will be notified in advance and invited to attend the awards dinner.
