Impact100 Sonoma nominated for the Jefferson Award

Impact 100 Sonoma was honored to be nominated for the County of Sonoma Jefferson Award in 2014.  As described on the County of Sonoma website:

The Jefferson Awards Program is a national recognition system designed to highlight public service in America. The Jefferson Awards began as part of the American Institute for Public Service in 1972 and was established by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, U.S. Senator Robert Taft, Jr., and Sam Beard, a staffer to Bobby Kennedy. More information about the national program can be found on the Jefferson Awards website.

Locally, the program was adopted by the County of Sonoma Board of Supervisors. After an analysis of other local recognition programs, the County’s program was designed to highlight the value of non-profit organizations, boards, commissions and advisory bodies, as well as individual efforts for Excellence in Community Leadership and Civic Engagement.
