Awards are given in three different population categories and in one special topical category, which is different each year. The 2020 Topical Category is "City Fire Department Staffing and Coverage."
The C.C. Ludwig Award recognizes elected officials who have made significant contributions to Minnesota city government. Similarly, the James F. Miller Leadership Award honors appointed city officials who have gone above and beyond the call of duty for their city and all Minnesota cities.
