Do you know an inspiring leader? Shine a well-deserved spotlight on a colleague's impact, leadership, inclusivity, or ethics. Nominating is easy but it does require a letter from a second source, so team up with a board member or community partner and share the shine.

We are now accepting nominations for the Legislator of the Year Award and the Public Service Lifetime Achievement Award. 

Inspiring Brilliance Award nominations close on December 8!
