Commissioners honor outstanding county programs at 2018 Pinnacle Awards

Boulder County, Colo. – Each year, the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) hold the Pinnacle Awards as a way to recognize the collaborative, innovative, and successful projects that have been implemented across all county departments and offices over the last year. In a ceremony on April 5, the BOCC announced the winners of the 2018 Pinnacle Awards.

Work teams are encouraged to submit innovative projects for consideration, and the commissioners narrow down all submissions to a set of finalist projects. This year there were 40 projects submitted, 15 finalist projects chosen to be highlighted, and eight awards given out. The eight winners were chosen for eight categories – Inclusion, Stewardship, Service, Engagement, Sustainability, Innovation, Resilience, and Commissioners’ Choice.

Each finalist project had the opportunity to make a roughly two-minute film explaining their project and those videos were shown during the ceremony. All videos are available for viewing on YouTube. Following the film screening, the BOCC announced their chosen winners. Winning project teams receive a framed photo with a plaque commemorating their win.

The winners of the 2018 Pinnacle Awards are:

  • CJS Family Navigator Program – Inclusion
  • Mayhoffer Farm Acquisition – Stewardship
  • Workforce GED Learning Lab – Service
  • Lafayette’s Choice – Engagement
  • Recycle in Place: Road Overlay – Sustainability
  • Oil & Gas Inspections – Innovation
  • Regional Housing Strategy – Resilience
  • Prepaypalooza – Commissioners’ Choice

Boulder County employees strive to provide the best in public service by implementing innovative and effective programs. These Pinnacle Award winning programs are just a handful of the great projects which were executed in the last year. Search www.BoulderCounty.org for more information about available services.
