The Jefferson Awards for Public Service, the most prestigious and longest-standing public service awards program in the United States, are given at both local and national levels. Local winners are "ordinary people who do extraordinary things without expectation of recognition."
At a later date, all 2020 San Francisco Bay Area regional winners will be recognized at the annual Jefferson Awards Ceremony in San Francisco, which highlights the passion, energy, and impact of Jefferson Award winners, who not only provide volunteer services, but who also champion the importance of volunteerism in local and global communities.
