The Distinguished Service Award is a resource for elected officials who wish to honor agencies, organizations, or individuals who exemplify the spirit of service within their communities and districts. Recipients of this award directly address an area of unmet need, working to fill gaps in local service provision. Volunteers who receive this prestigious award focus their energy on legacy projects that will strengthen and impact their communities over time. This award is designed to honor organizations and citizens who have turned the tide for good in Arkansas, regardless of the service hours invested or state/national citizenship status.
