Midland Among 'Best Places For Young People' 9-21-2010

The greater Midland area will be honored Tuesday in the nation's capital for being one of the 100 best communities for young people.
The 100 Best competition is part of the Alliance's Grad Nation campaign, a 10-year initiative to mobilize all Americans to end the dropout crisis.
This year's competition looked closely at what communities are doing to decrease dropout rates, officials said.
More than 350 communities in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. were nominated for the 100 Best competition.
The winners, 30 of which were first-time recipients of the honor, hail from 37 states.
Officials said they were chosen by a distinguished panel of judges that included some of the nation's most well-known civic, business and nonprofit leaders.
