It is time again to look around and recognize the people who provide outstanding public service in Washington DC. Do you know of an outstanding DC Government employee or an innovative team? Members of our community are encouraged to submit their nomination for the 16th annual Cafritz Awards. Self-nominees can simply log on and apply directly starting on December 10, 2016.
Each year five individuals whose contributions, commitment and performance demonstrate outstanding public service to DC residents are recognized and rewarded through The Morris & Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Awards for Distinguished DC Government Employees. Last year we introduced a new Innovation Team Award, designed to honor the achievements of work units, groups, or teams of 3 -10 individuals in one or multiple District of Columbia Government agencies.
Over the past 15 years, Cafritz Awards have been presented to 77 exceptional individuals and a team who played a vital role in providing outstanding service to DC residents. Award recipients have come from 36 various DC Government agencies, offices, and the University of DC.
