Jefferson Awards Nominations Now Being Accepted



The Jefferson Awards recognize local people who do extraordinary volunteer work within our community. One of the Jefferson Award recipients each year is selected to represent the Greater Capital District at the National Jefferson Awards in Washington, DC in June.

The American Institute for Public Service was created in 1972 by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, U.S. Senator Robert Taft, Jr. and Sam Beard. This public foundation established the Jefferson Awards, a Nobel Prize for Community and Public Service. The local level recognizes individuals who are committed to improving their communities through volunteer and community services. The honorees are ordinary people who accomplish extraordinary things, often without the expectation of recognition. Every neighborhood has "unsung heroes," volunteers who go above and beyond their expected duties. Together they make their neighborhoods and communities a better place to live.

All of this year’s Jefferson Award recipients will be recognized at a dinner in April at  the Century House in Latham.

For the past 13 years, the Times UnionSt. Peter's Health Partners & WNYT have worked together to honor volunteers in New York’s Capital Region. Join us as we look for special volunteers from 2018.

Nominations may be submitted at www.timesunion.com/jeffersonawards

Deadline to submit an entry is February 26, 2019.

For more information, please contact Charmaine Ushkow at [email protected]or (518) 454-5792.
