Participation in Site Selection’s Governor’s Cup is an important opportunity to showcase your communities and how you’ve made an impact by nominating the economic development project wins.

Because of your work, Ohio ranked No. 1 in the Governor’s Cup 2020 state economic and business attraction rankings in projects per capita for the second consecutive year. An outstanding achievement! Congratulations and thank you for earning Ohio this coveted title yet again.

This year, Site Selection has announced a few changes to its project criteria and will now collect data on a quarterly basis, so that the projects are available when/if the editors need them. The new dates for submitting quarterly data are:

  1. 1st quarter (January/February/March) by May 21st.
  2. 2nd quarter (April/May/June) by August 1st (This will be the mid-year submission date).
  3. 3rd quarter (July/August/September) by November 1st.
  4. 4th quarter (October/November/December) by December 17th (This will be the end-of-year submission date).

JobsOhio encourages you to submit quarterly to Site Selection so Ohio can continue to show its strong economic standing and ongoing leadership in recovering from this pandemic. The JobsOhio Governor’s Cup submission portal is always open. In sharing your projects, you can:

  • Help tell the story of aggregate success throughout the state.
  • Entice additional opportunities for economic growth.
  • Aid Ohio’s economic development entities in refining strategies and resources to grow Ohio as a desirable location for business investment.

You are the difference-makers in each Ohio community across the state and, through these submissions, Ohio’s ongoing recognition is proof of that.

In Memoriam – The Life of Dan Evers

I first met Dan in the fall of 2016.  I had moved to Central Ohio over the late holiday season in 2015 to begin serving as the new Director of GROW Licking County CIC, Dan’s former role.  I was immediately struck by many in the community who worried that I would “not be enough,” that the “shoes were too big,” and that “Dan was larger than life.”  And they were right.
