Nominations for Harvard University’s prestigious Innovations in American Government Award will be accepted through September 15th.

The Innovation in American Government Award is sometimes referred to as the premier public-sector award in the nation, and “the Oscars” of government award programs. The award is a program of the Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, and is administered in partnership with the Council for Excellence in Government.

The Council for Excellence in Government is a national, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization whose mission is to improve government performance by strengthening results-oriented management and creative leadership in the public sector, and to build understanding by focusing public discussion on government’s role and responsibilities.

Each of the winners will receive a $100,000 grant.

To apply and for more information, go to or to the Excellence in Government site or call The Council for Excellence in Government on 202-728-0418.
