Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price is among 50 mayors worldwide competing for the World Mayor Prize.

Price was recommended for consideration for the 2018 World Mayor Prize by 17 individuals and organizations. These nominations were received before the mayor’s placement on the 2018 long list. Since then she has received further nominations from people within and outside the United States.

The 2018 short list will be published in August, with the winner of the World Mayor Prize and Commendations to be announced in late January/early February 2019.

The competition is organized every other year by City Mayors Foundation, a London-based group founded in 2004. The award recognizes mayors who have made outstanding contributions to their communities. The 2018 award will focus on women who serve as mayors. Organizers hope to encourage more women to contemplate a career in local government and run for political office.
