The nation's highest honor for community service was awarded on Tuesday, June 19 for extraordinary individuals and organizations whose selfless, noble and compassionate work has improved the lives of countless people and amplified our collective commitment to helping one another and contributing to the larger good. Known as the "Nobel Prize of public service," this year's Jefferson Awards – now in its 40th year – recognizes contributions to service in eight separate categories, including: Greatest Public Service by an Elected or Appointed Official; Greatest Public Service by a Public Citizen; and Greatest Public Service Benefiting the Disadvantaged.
