WASHINGTON —The Economic Development Association (EDA) is looking for nominations for its 2003 Excellence in Economic Development Awards.

Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., is urging Michigan organizations to submit nominations for the awards that recognize innovative economic development strategies and are designed to showcase best practices and highlight outstanding results.

“There are many Michigan businesses and organizations that have done an excellent job developing and executing great new economic strategies,” said Levin. “I hope that Michigan organizations apply for this competition because they deserve recognition for advancements in the use of land, labor, capital and technology.”

Awards will be presented in the fields of urban or suburban economic development, rural economic development, enhancing regional competitiveness, economic adjustment strategies, technology and faith-based social entrepreneurship and innovation.

The EDA will honor award recipients and will discuss its business strategies at the national conference in Washington, D.C., in May.

Interested nonprofit organizations, local, state and regional entities, universities and colleges can get more information about the awards by calling Nat Wieneckie, acting deputy assistant secretary, congressional liaisons, program research and evaluation at (202) 482-2309.

Applications are available on the EDA’s Web site, www.doc.gov/eda. The deadline for nomination submission is Feb. 28.
