Get Involved with Public Service Recognition Week
Celebrated annually during the first week of May since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) is time set aside to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees. Throughout the country, mayors, governors, agency leaders, communities and public service organizations participate in PSRW by issuing proclamations, hosting award ceremonies and special tribute events, and delivering messages about the value of public service.
The theme for this year is "Government Works" and provides an opportunity for employees and their agencies to showcase the important contributions our nation's public servants deliver on behalf of the American people every day.
Initiatives and resources for celebrating PSRW include:
- PSRW Thunderclap: Sign up for the PSRW 2015 Thunderclap campaign where a few hundred supporters can spread a message of thanks to millions of social media followers.https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/24786-thank-our-public-servants?locale=en
- Public Service White Board: Join the white board photo campaign on Facebook and Instagram to proclaim "I © public servants because..." or "I'm proud to serve because...."
- Faces of Government: Help share positive stories of how government works by contributing profiles about government employees and their work and accomplishments.
- Like the Public Employees Roundtable onFacebook, follow them onTwitter(@PERoundtable) andInstagram(PERoundtable), and join the conversation using #PSRW.
