The American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration (AAPRA), in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), has announced that the James City County Park and Recreation Department is a finalist for the 2012 National Gold Medal Awards for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management. This is the seventh time  since 1999 that  James City County has been named a finalist.

The Gold Medal Awards program, founded in 1965, honors communities in the United States that demonstrate excellence in parks and recreation through long-range planning, resource management, volunteerism, environmental stewardship, program development, professional development and agency recognition.

Applications are separated into five classes based on population and agencies are judged on their ability to address the needs of those they serve through the collective energies of citizens, staff and elected officials. Four finalists in each class are chosen to compete for grand honors each year.

JCC is one of four agencies selected in the 50,001 to 100,000 population to be named a finalist for the National Gold Medal Award. The winner of the Gold Medal Award will be announced at the 2012 National Recreation & Parks Association’s Annual Congress and Exposition in Anaheim California in October.
