Learn more about your state or local government and have the chance to be awarded a cash prize of $2,000. The Montgomery/Prince George’s County Chapter of the AGA is hosting its annual contest for teams of college students to create a Citizen‐Centric Report (CCR) on a governmental entity in Maryland. 

Contest details:

Teams must include 2‐4 students and may select any governmental entity in Maryland (e.g., State of Maryland, Montgomery County, Prince George’ County).

Teams must register by January 31, 2020 via email to accountability@marylandaga.com; providing the school, names of team members, and the governmental entity selected.

AGA National’s website has many resources to assist with the preparation of a CCR, including a variety of templates. You can find this information at  http://www.agacgfm.org/citizen/. The information needed to draft the CCR is expected to be available online.

Teams must submit their CCRs by February 28, 2020. Early submission is encouraged!

Finalists will present their CCRs at a Montgomery/Prince George’s County AGA Chapter dinner meeting. Please have at least one team member who is in the DC/Maryland area and would be able to attend. These meetings also offer a great networking opportunity with local professionals.

The winning team will be announced by March 31, 2020 and will be awarded a $2,000 cash prize during our May Awards Dinner to be evenly divided among the team members.
