List narrowed to 50 towns and cities in $10 million competition to stimulate growth and revitalization

Frontier Communications and DISH Network have narrowed the America's Best Communities competition from more than 400 communities to 50 still in the running for the $10 million initiative to stimulate economic revitalization in small towns and cities, says a press release from the organizations. All 50 communities will receive $50,000 and have six months "to further develop and implement their comprehensive strategies to accelerate their local economies and improve quality of life."

The competition was open to all towns and cities in Frontier's service areas with populations between 9,500 to 80,000. Smaller communities could collaborate on projects. Entrants submitted and implemented their best plans for future growth and prosperity. In 2016, the top 16 towns and cities will advance to the semifinals.
