Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The city of Madison, Indiana is $100,000 richer, one step closer to possibly winning millions of dollars in a national competition. 

Madison is one of eight national finalists for America's Best Communities Competition. The field was narrowed down from more than 400 original submissions.

Members of Madison's team gave a 10-minute "pitch" highlighting the city's plans for a new bicycle and pedestrian trail, among other things.

The city now has 11 months to carry out the plan for a chance to win up to $3 million.

The city's Mayor says he's happy that others are recognizing the community.
