The Greater Phoenix Region, Arizona; City of Parkland, Florida; Reston, Virginia; and Village of Shorewood, Wisconsin, are harnessing the energy and increasing the productivity that results when people of all ages come together. Recognizing changing demographics, these communities are effectively engaging, serving, and honoring all generations as they advance policies and practices that stimulate cooperation and collaboration.

We are also pleased to acknowledge Miami Gardens, Florida and Rye, New York as national finalists for the award. We are impressed by the commitment of these communities to intentionally connect the generations and we will follow and celebrate their continued growth and progress in the future.

These six communities, along with the eleven communities recognized over the past two years, show what is possible when the government, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and community residents come together to unleash the power of intergenerational experiences to help people of all ages thrive in their communities.
