The National Association of Counties awarded four Achievement Awards to Loudoun County, the organization announced May 18. The Achievement Awards Program “is a non-competitive awards program which seeks to recognize innovative county government programs.”
Loudoun County Public Library’s Pre-K Skill Builders was one of 66 programs nationwide recognized in the children and youth category. The program is designed to help children prepare for kindergarten “through intentional play and dialog. Children improve foundational skills while caregivers learn how to easily replicate and build on the activities at home,” according to LCPL.
In the community and economic development category, the Loudoun Farm Exchange created by the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development was one of 99 programs recognized. The exchange helps local agricultural producers find farm goods, services and land available in the county.
Hal and Berni Hanson Regional Park in Brambleton received recognition in the parks and recreation category, one of 43 projects nationwide. The 257-acre park opened last year and includes numerous athletic fields, including the first purpose-built cricket field in the county.
The Loudoun County Department of Family Services received recognition in the information technology category for moving its summer camp application process online, one of 157 initiatives included in the awards list.
