Cincinnati Rotary Opens Jefferson Award Nominations

Leading Professional Services Group To Recognize Extraordinary Cincinnatians

Cincinnati, OH – January 29, 2013 – The Rotary Club of Cincinnati is again teaming up with the American Institute of Public Service (AIPS) as a local sponsor of the Jefferson Award to help find and honor individuals in our community that go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to their volunteer efforts in the Greater Cincinnati area.

In partnership with Enquirer Media and Local 12, The Rotary Club of Cincinnati will be looking to recognize ordinary people who do extraordinary things without the expectation of recognition or reward.  These are individuals that are changing and improving our community, while addressing an important issue facing our area.

The Jefferson Award, which is recognized as the Nobel Prize for public service, was created in 1972 by Cincinnati’s own U.S. Senator Robert Taft and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and is presented annually to recipients in more than 90 cities in the United States.  The AIPS’s mission is to encourage and honor individuals for their achievements and contributions through public and community service.

On March 14, 2013, the Rotary Club of Cincinnati will host the annual Jefferson Award presentation luncheon during their weekly meeting and will announce this year’s winner.  The winner will then go to Washington, D.C. in June to represent our region for the National Award.  The nomination form is available on the Rotary Club of Cincinnati’s website at

Deadline for nominations is 3:00 p.m. on Monday, February 25, 2013.

Rotary is an organization of business and professional persons united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world. More information can be accessed at
