Excellence in Virginia Government Awards
The Excellence in Virginia Government Awards (EVGA) are presented by VCU’s L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs to celebrate the accomplishments of Virginians who have made distinctive contributions to the practice of government and to the well-being of our communities and our citizens. Now entering its tenth year, the EVGA has become a hallmark of excellence for both VCU and the commonwealth of Virginia. Last year’s ceremony was a tremendous success with more than 300 individuals and 21 sponsors attending the event.
