Governor's Awards for Excellence in Public Service

Message from Governor Doug Burgum

It is an honor to announce the call of nominations for the 2018 Governor's Awards for Excellence in Public Service. This year, the awards reflect renewed emphasis on a foundation of respect for the past, gratitude for the present, and inspiration for the future. 

The public servants in the great state of North Dakota have my deepest gratitude for providing world-class services. As indicated in my message earlier this week, this year's awards are an opportunity to highlight the ways we are innovating, providing improved services in the midst of shrinking budgets and enhancing the lives of our fellow citizens through our "relentless pursuit of exceptional."  

Please spend a moment now reflecting on the colleagues who have made a positive impact on your team, your agency and your community, and take the time to nominate them through the link below. Nominations will be accepted through August 18th, and award recipients will be announced and recognized during State Employee Recognition Week in September. Share your gratitude by nominating someone who represents the best in service, innovation and inspiration. 

Thank you for all you do, and for taking the time to nominate one - or many - of your deserving colleagues!
