Rankings and Recognitions

We like to recognize all the things that make Greeley a thriving community: student athletic and academic achievements; positive partnerships between businesses and schools; national rankings; and local, state and national awards earned by our non-profit, civic, business and government workers.

These recognitions aren't a pat on the back from locals to locals; rather, they're awards and kudos given from outside the community to those in Greeley who deserve it.

At each City Council Meeting, we recognize the people, organizations, and businesses that make Greeley great.  Visit GTV8 to view videos of the presentations. 


What’s Great About Greeley: March 2018

Weld Werks Medianoche Reserve: Top 25 Best Beers of 2017 by Draft Magazine
Congratulations to Greeley’s own WeldWerks Brewing for being the only Colorado brewery to have a beer ranked in Draft Magazine’s Top 25 Best Beers of 2017.  WeldWerks bourbon-barrel aged imperial stout with vanilla beans, toasted coconut and cacao nibs pushed voters to dub it the “epic indulgence.”

Crabtree Brewing a Featured Story
Congratulations to Crabtree Brewing Company for being featured in BizWest.

School District 6 - GAP Receives GradNation Grant
Greeley-Evans School District 6 and the Greeley-Evans Alternative Program have been awarded a GradNation Acceleration Grant by America’s Promise Alliance. The grant is part of a national campaign to raise the high school on-time graduation rate to 90 percent by 2020. Only five GradNation grants were awarded throughout the country. District 6 will receive $100,000 over two years to fund this initiative through the GAP program in Greeley.

Young AmeriTowne On the Road
The City of Greeley and Aims Community College were chosen to host the Young AmeriTowne On the Road event.  Young AmeriTowne is a fifth-grade program where students learn about the free enterprise system, while assuming the roles of consumers and producers, have a job, create their own government, hold elections, and gain understanding about how to be good citizens.



District 6: New Student Health Advisory Council
Congratulations to the seventeen high school students that will serve on District 6’s newly formed Student Health Advisory Council.  More than 50 students applied for the opportunity.  The group will determine significant health issues that exist in their peer group and then work to address that issue between now and May 2019.  The program is funded through a grant from Kaiser Permanente.


Police Polar Plunge Exemplifies City Values
Two of our core values, namely Stewardship and Integrity, came to mind in February when the City Council recognized our police personnel for their outstanding fundraising efforts. Each year the GPD joins forces with other law enforcement agencies throughout the state to raise money for the Colorado Special Olympics.  Last year, GPD ranked third for fundraising among all law enforcement agencies in the state when they raised over $30,000 to support the athletes. 

Watch the first edition of You Otto Know with City Manager, Roy Otto and Officer Maurice Hall about the GPD and the Special Olympics.
