The Smart21 Communities


The Smart21 announcement is the first stage in ICF's annual Intelligent Community Awards cycle.  Based on nomination forms submitted by communities large and small from around the world, ICF selects 21 finalists with the potential to become one of the Forum's Top7 Intelligent Communities of the Year.  The Smart21 list is announced at least 60 days before the selection of the Top7 and promoted to the world's media by ICF and the communities involved.  Gaining a place among the year's Smart21 is considered a badge of honor as well as the first step greater recognition as an Intelligent Community positioned to  prosper in the broadband economy.
