Hampton Named All-America City
The National Civic League named Hampton an All-America City during an awards ceremony in Denver last month. The award is presented to communities that involve and engage their residents.
This year’s theme was “Creating Thriving Communities Through Youth Engagement.” Hampton submitted three programs for consideration:
- The Academies of Hampton
- Youth and Young Adult programs
- Community policing and programs, including summer camps and community events.
This is the fourth time Hampton has been named All-America City.
