The list has been compiled since 2005 by America’s Promise, a foundation started by Colin Powell that asks towns throughout the U.S. to put young people first by living up to five promises.
Among them are safe places to go after school, attention to health care and the encouragement of community service.
America’s Promise spokeswoman Colleen Wilber says Hudson and Medina each stood out among the more than 300 communities that applied for the honor, because of programs like “Living Well Medina County” and “Hudson Community First.”
“It’s a collaborative effort to sort of bring all the different sectors of the community together to evaluate youth programming, and (to) make sure that the programs they have in place work, and that they’re assisting all the kids in the best way possible.”
Hudson is on the list for the third straight year, while Medina is making its first appearance. Cincinnati and one of its suburbs, Norwood, also made return appearances on this year’s survey.
