Excellence.gov Awards were created to recognize government programs that provide substantive improvements in government activities. But that is not the whole story – At a time when government employees were singled out at the cause for everything wrong in the world, we felt that it was important to put faces on the great things that civil servants do, and to acknowledge the people who do the hard work to make things happen.
In 2013, 25 more programs are singled out for recognition – and there are countless government employees who deserve recognition in these and in hundreds of other programs across government.
Can you put names to those who have done great things? Not the programs this time, but the individuals! Post your choices for civil servant heroes!
You can vote for your favorite via Twitter – just include #ExcellenceGov
