The Jefferson Awards
The Jefferson Awards Foundation is committed to honoring the local community service efforts of volunteers living and working in Chemung, Steuben and Schuyler counties. The Jefferson Awards for Public Service gives the community a chance to recognize ordinary people who are doing extraordinary things, and making a lasting impact that benefits so many in our area.
The Jefferson Awards for Public Service were established by the American Institute for Public Service. The Institute was founded in 1972 by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, U.S. Senator Robert Taft, Jr. and Sam Beard. Nomination forms can be picked up at any Chemung Canal Trust Company in Chemung, Steuben or Schuyler counties, or by downloading here.
Chemung Canal is proud to partner with WETM-TV and Corning Enterprises to present these awards each year.
