Founded in 1972 by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Senator Robert Taft Jr., and Sam Beard, the Jefferson Awards National Ceremonies are the country’s longest standing and most prestigious celebration of public service. Over the past 43 years we have identified and honored over 60,000 local “Unsung Heroes” alongside hundreds of prominent national figures including Michael Bloomberg, Tom Brokaw, Walter Cronkite, Steve Jobs, Paul Newman, Peyton Manning, Mariano Rivera, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elie Wiesel. By celebrating their outstanding service, we are amplifying their solutions for others to apply in their own communities.
Champions are organizations who, in partnership with the Jefferson Awards Foundation, are dedicated to building a culture of service in their communities.
