Nominate a volunteer for public-service award

Advertiser Staff

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.

Submit your nomination by going to wwww.honoluluadvertiser.com and clicking on the logo to nominate a local volunteer. Or go to www.hawaiinewsnow.com and search for Jefferson Award.

You may also e-mail a nomination form to jeffersonawards@beckercommunications.com, 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.
