Jefferson Award

The Rotary Club of Cincinnati is again teaming up with the American Institute of Public Service (AIPS) as a local sponsor of the Jefferson Award, to help find and honor individuals in our community that go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to their volunteer efforts in the Greater Cincinnati area. In partnership with the Enquirer Media and Local 12, The Rotary Club of Cincinnati will be looking to recognize ordinary people who do extraordinary things without the expectation of recognition or reward. These are individuals that are changing and improving our community, while addressing an important issue facing our area.

The Jefferson Award, which is recognized as the Nobel Prize for public service, was created in 1972 by Cincinnati’s own U.S. Senator Robert Taft and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and is presented annually to recipients in more than 90 cities in the United States. The AIPS’s mission is to encourage and honor individuals for their achievements and contributions through public and community service.
