The Urban Excellence Awards celebrates businesses, organizations, individuals, events and projects that have made significant contributions toward creating a unique, vibrant and diverse downtown environment – and have made a lasting, positive impact on Downtown Tampa. Each year an awards jury representing a cross-section of Downtown constituencies select award winners honoring the leadership, innovation, hard work, talent, and community spirit. Brought to you by the Tampa Downtown Partnership, this program embodies the culture of Tampa's Downtown.
