The Partnership for Public Service announced today the 32 federal employees nominated for the 2016 Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medal awards (A.K.A. Sammies).

Celebrating their fifteenth anniversary this year, the Service to America Medals have earned the reputation as the most prestigious awards to honor America’s civil servants. The 2016 finalists will be honored May 3 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. as part of Public Service Recognition Week.

The finalists’ achievements include finding new ways to detect and stop terrorist-made explosives, halting the spread of the largest animal disease outbreak in U.S. history, designing a new generation of personal protective equipment to improve the safety of construction workers, truck drivers, firefighters, police and others in high-risk professions, and significantly reducing preventable medical errors in U.S. hospitals.
