Nominate a volunteer for public-service award
The Advertiser and Hawaii News Now want to recognize the everyday heroes, the ones who volunteer without thought of attention or personal gain, for the annual Jefferson Award for Public Service.
Nominations are being accepted through Feb. 26.
The program, founded by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, former U.S. senator Robert Taft Jr. and Sam Beard, recognizes public and community service.
You may also e-mail a nomination form to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax your nomination to (808) 537-4990 or mail it to The Jefferson Awards, 119 Merchant St., Suite 300, Honolulu, HI 96813.
A panel of judges will review the nominations and select five recipients to be recognized in April. One will be selected to represent Hawai'i at a national awards ceremony in Washington, D.C.
