Commissioners honor outstanding county programs at annual 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 10, the BOCC announced the winners of the 2019 Pinnacle Awards.

Work teams are encouraged to submit innovative projects for considerations, and the commissioners narrow down all submissions to a set of finalist projects. This year there were 12 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 2019 Pinnacle Awards are:

  • WIC Gap – InclusionPinnacle Award Logo
  • Lower Boulder Creek Aquatic Restoration Project – Stewardship
  • Homeless Solutions for Boulder County (HSBC) – Service
  • Primary Election Voter Outreach Campaign – Engagement
  • CC4CA – Sustainability
  • Community Connect – Innovation
  • Roadway Overtopping Mapping – Resilience
  • LGBTQ historic Courthouse Designation – 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. Visit www.BoulderCounty.org for more information about available services.
