Brief history of the Jefferson Award

Nevada Appeal Staff Reports

In 1972, the American Institute for Public Service was founded to establish the equivalent of a Nobel Prize for public and community service – The Jefferson Awards.

The awards are presented on national and local levels. National award recipients represent a who’s who of outstanding Americans.

On the local level, Jefferson Awards recipients are ordinary people who do extraordinary things without expecting reward. To help identify unsung heroes, the institute developed a partnership with media sponsors.

In Northern Nevada, the awards are given by KRNV news Channel 4 in Reno.
