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.

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

The Jefferson Awards are sponsored by St. Peter’s Health Partners, WNYT NewsChannel 13 and the Times Union.

Nominations may be submitted at

Deadline to submit an entry is February 25, 2020.
