County Services Awards

The purpose of the County Services Awards is to increase local recognition of individuals and teams who have done outstanding work. Using a similar application as the state awards process, county and regional staff and council members can apply for County Services Awards. Those who apply will be encouraged to submit their revised/updated applications to the state awards. Refer to the County Services Awards Summary that identifies award qualifications and which are for individuals or teams.

Applications are due Nov. 4 to the area chairs listed in the menus below.
