Just days remain in the America’s Best Communities competition; a $10 million prize competition supported by Frontier Communications, DISH Network, CoBank and The Weather Channel. The goal was to create incentives for communities and towns to come together across rural America to support revitalization and improve lives and livelihoods. As we prepare to announce the three grand-prize winners, we’re reflecting on the impact of this campaign.

More than 350 communities entered the competition in 2014, and 50 were selected as quarterfinalists. La Porte was among this vibrant group of villages, towns and cities that earned its status as one of America’s Best Communities.
