If you know an unsung hero, now is the time to make them known. Recognizing the highest ideals of community service, multiplying volunteerism, pointing to the heroes who give of themselves to help their neighbor, who through their selflessness and energy make our community a better place, that has been the value of the Jefferson Awards for Public Service since they began in 1972. That too will be the purpose of the NCW Civic Achievement Awards, bestowed this year for the first time in conjunction with the Jefferson Awards.

The Jefferson Awards are the “Nobel Prize of public service.” It has since its founding by the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Sen. Robert Taft Jr., provided invaluable service — recognition for those who richly deserve it, but by example and inspiration moving others to join in. The highest ideals of community service are both recognized and encouraged in others. The award winners are people who “make a difference in their community, our nation and the world through their jobs or volunteer service.”
