2018 Exemplary Public Servants of the Year Awards
Deadline: Dec. 3, 2018
Nominations are now open for American City & County’s Exemplary Public Servants of the Year Award.
However, the 2018 award winners will be chosen differently than we’ve chosen past years’ leadership awards. We’ll be selecting this year’s winners based exclusively on merit rather than differentiating between city, county and public works leaders. This will generate a larger, more diverse group of candidates. For example, if your mayor stamped out corruption in your town, or a snow plow driver worked 18 hours straight to make sure your community was safe, we want to hear about it.
Nominees will be judged on their accomplishments and the impact these actions had on their communities. Please note, this is not a lifetime achievement award. There are scores of public servants who have dedicated their lives to bettering their communities; however, we want to hear about actions taken in 2018 only. The winner or winners will be profiled in the December issue of American City & County.
There is no standard nomination form. Instead, please email AC&C Editor Derek Prall (email@example.com) and Editorial Director Bill Wolpin (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your nominee’s name, title, and community. Please provide a brief description of their accomplishments (no more than 1,000 words) by Dec. 3. Be sure to include contact information for both the nominator and nominee.
Thanks, and good luck!
