Federal worker awards contest seeks nominations

By Ed O'Keefe

Awards season is underway in Hollywood (the People's Choice Awards were last night, the Golden Globes are soon and the Oscars are next month) -- and nominations are now being accepted for one of Washington's top rank-and-file honors.

Service to America Medals

The Partnership for Public Service is seeking nominees for the 10th annual Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals, considered the most prestigious honor possible for rank-and-file feds.

Prizes are awarded in nine categories, including Federal Employee of the Year, and winners receive cash prizes totaling $3,000 to $10,000.

Last year's winners met with First Lady Michelle Obama and attended a Capitol Hill ceremony in their honor. (Full disclosure: The Washington Post -- which maintains a content-sharing deal with the Partnership -- also hosted the winners for lunch.)

Nominations for worthy federal employees will be accepted at through Jan. 31.
