Herbert Hoover Uncommon Public Service Award
Presented by: Hoover Presidential Foundation
The Uncommon Public Service Award was created by the Hoover Presidential Foundation to honor those public servants who make use of their time doing service work and humanitarian projects. While the Hoover Presidential Foundation appoints a panel of judges from the Board of Trustees, the Foundation requests the public to nominate a legislator who exemplifies and demonstrates honesty, integrity and uncommon and extraordinary public service to the people of Iowa. The nominees are judged solely on their public service and humanitarian projects. Names, locations and political affiliation of the nominated legislators are not seen by the judges.
"Being a politician is a poor profession.
Being a public servant is a noble one." -Herbert Hoover
