North Dakota’s Main Street initiative is a shared vision of healthy, vibrant communities that through fiscally responsible planning, attract the talent needed to support our growing economy. The Main Street Awards honor communities who show excellence in these principles by actively working to differentiate and enhance the quality of life for their residents, present and future. These awards are an opportunity for communities to showcase their unique efforts and attributes, and call attention to the tangible benefits an engaged community can create. 

The Main Street Awards are a collaborative effort of the Office of Governor Doug Burgum and North Dakota Department of Commerce.
