Video: El Paso Named All American City – Behind the Scenes

The City of El Paso has been named an All-America City by the National Civic League. A team of El Paso delegates competed for the award with 20 other cities from across the nation.

This video showcases El Paso’s quest to once again become an All-America City. It includes interviews from residents, city employees and members of the housing authority who presented to a panel of judges in Denver, Colorado. The All-American City award event took place at the Hilton Denver City Center in June.

The National Civic League wrote the following about the Sun City:

El Paso built upon the City’s 2015 Strategic Plan to conduct a year-long community outreach process that reached more than 70,000 people and has led to an Advanced Leadership Training program for graduates of The Neighborhood Leadership Academy, partnerships to increase training and adult education, and creative implementation of the Rental Assistance Demonstration Program to serve more than 4,000 families.

City Asks for Resident’s Help to Win 2018 All-America City Award

The City of El Paso is a finalist for the 2018 All-America City Award and needs help in celebrating the City of Champions.

Officials with the city of El Paso said, “the All-America City Award (AAC) is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious civic recognition award, and El Paso plans to win; El Pasoans deserve no less.”

As a City of Champions, the team is taking local champions to tell their stories at the AAC Showcase in Denver. To that end, the team is requesting community support to make that happen.

There are two ways for El Pasoans to contribute:

  • Purchase your May 17 Chihuahua baseball game tickets online and click on the EPBDAY promotion. A portion of the cost of each ticket will go toward this effort. There will be a City birthday celebration at the game with fireworks.
  • Donate at the City of Champions GoFundMe page.

Officials with the city say all money raised will be used specifically for community members to attend and participate in the All-America City presentation in Denver.

City Of El Paso Named a Finalist for 2018 All-America City Award

The City of El Paso announced Wednesday afternoon that the National Civic League (NCL) has named the City of El Paso as a finalist for the 2018 All-America City Award.

The All-America City Award (AAC) is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious civic recognition award.

‘We are pleased that the City of El Paso is once again a finalist for the All-America City Award. The City won in 1969 and 2010, and I am confident we will do well this year,” said City of El Paso Mayor Dee Margo.

Participants had to submit an award application outlining three community projects that address their communities’ most pressing challenges.

The City’s Department of Community and Human Development submitted the following projects that highlight the city’s efforts to improve quality of life:

  1. Empowering El Pasoans for Services and Leadership
  2. Career and Adult Educational Opportunities
  3. El Paso Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Program.

The 20 cities named as finalists will send a delegation to Denver, Colorado, in June to make a live presentation to a panel of judges. Each community will bring a team of residents, nonprofit leaders, business representatives, government officials and young people to participate in presentations and workshops for three days. The 2018 AAC finalists represent collaborative, inclusive and innovative civic engagement.

“Mayor and Council, the City’s executive team, and City staff have all worked hard for this honor, and I am proud that we are one of only two Texas cities to become a finalist,” said City Manager Tommy Gonzalez. “We are excited to tell the City of El Paso’s story and showcase all of the advancements we have made.”
