2020 Exemplary Public Servants of the Year Awards
Deadline: Nov. 30, 2020
Nominations are now open for American City & County’s Exemplary Public Servants of the Year Award.
As we did in 2019, this year we’ll be selecting this year’s winners based exclusively on merit rather than differentiating between city, county and public works leaders. Last year, this generated a larger, more diverse group of candidates, and we hope it will this year as well. This means if your mayor stamped out corruption in your town, your police chief dramatically improved community relations 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 and they all deserve recognition; however, for the purposes of this award, we only want to hear about recent accomplishments. The winner or winners will be profiled on the American City & County website.
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 Nov. 30, and be sure to include contact information for both the nominator and nominee.
Thanks, and good luck!
