Twenty-one winners in 19 different communities were recognized for excellence in the use of Lottery funds for community and conservation projects. Winners were chosen based on the creativity of the project, the economic and social impact on the community, and whether the project achieved its goal.

ALCC is pleased to announce that seven of those award-winning community projects were implemented by ALCC Affiliate members:

The total Colorado Lottery proceeds represented in these 21 projects is more than $8.6 million. Recipients received project funding from one or more of the Lottery’s four beneficiaries; Great Outdoors Colorado, The Conservation Trust Fund, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and Building Excellent Schools Today.

“These projects display how important outdoor recreation is to both Coloradans and visitors,” said Lottery Director Laura Solano. “The Lottery congratulates and recognizes the 2015 Starburst winners for their vision in creating quality recreation opportunities in their communities.”

Each recipient will receive their award during a formal presentation in their local community later this fall. For more information on Starburst Awards, visit the Colorado Lottery web site.
