TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The City of Tallahassee is asking for your help in telling the community's story.

Leading up to the National Civic League's All-America City competition on June 14 in Colorado, the City is asking you to highlight things that make Tallahassee unique by posting photos, videos, and messages on social media using  #Tally4AAC and #AAC15.

Each year, 10 communities are chosen for the title by the League. 

The award celebrates and recognizes neighborhoods, villages, towns, cities, counties, tribes and metro regions that have engaged residents in innovative, inclusive and effective efforts to tackle critical challenges. 

A local committee made up of members representing area non-profits, government, businesses and community volunteers compiled a comprehensive entry about the Tallahassee-Leon County community. The entry highlighted three programs: Cascades Park, Distinguished Young Gentlemen (DYG) and Neighborhood REACH.

Tallahassee was first recognized as an All-America City in 1999.
