    years in a row or so they tell me It is a competition within the competition However all will tell me how inspired they were yet again by the quality of these cities and how much they learned They will thank us for choosing them or inviting them to be judges This is no small thing There is a lot of reading and a lot on the line as they do their work over two weeks But the quality of the judges the qualitative part of the ICF selection is high and they are a group that I want to thank since they work behind the scenes It gets tougher for this group each year One other thing I can expect to take place Friday night at around 9 15 PM EST are six communities who will barely speak with me after we make the announcement of Intelligent Community of the Year Some will legitimately tell me that they are happy to have been there because they know what a great achievement it is which is the absolute truth All will tell me that the Summit was productive they learned tons they made good contacts for the future and they told their story to the world ICF is unique and they get that I would expect this because they are doing what I would most likely do These are competitive people and stakeholders in great places award winning places If they weren t they would not be sitting in a beautiful Arcadian Room in Downtown Toronto the city of the future on June 11 th waiting for the announcement You don t become a Top7 Community in this crowd without having battled your way back from the near dead in some cases As the commercial says You want it all
