Schulte Roofing is proud to sponsor the 17th Annual Jefferson Awards, which honor local citizens in our community for their outstanding public service.
Nomination categories include: Youth (age 17 or younger), Government/Public Service, Health, Senior (age 65 or older), Community Organizations and Education/Arts.
A 350-500 biography must be submitted with the nomination form. Information included in the biography can include the nominee’s impact on the community, their volunteer contributions, the number of years the nominee has given to service in the community and what makes the individual deserving of a Jefferson Award.
The American Institute for Public Service created the Jefferson Awards in 1972 to honor those who have dedicated time to public service. Since 2004, select citizens in the Bryan/College Station area have been honored with Jefferson Awards.
KBTX is once again the media partner for the Jefferson Awards in our community. Nomination forms can also be dropped off at the KBTX studio, 4141 E. 29th St. in Bryan.
If you know someone in our community that fits the criteria for the Jefferson Awards, we encourage you to nominate them today. Nomination forms are due February 17th.
KBTX will broadcast the Jefferson Awards Ceremony at 6:30 p.m., April 27, 2017, from the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum rotunda.
