Each year President Obama honors a handful of extraordinary Americans with the Citizens Medal, one of our nation’s highest civilian honors.
The Citizens Medal recognizes Americans for exemplary deeds of service outside of their regular jobs—people who feed the needy, who take care of our veterans, or who support our children.
Do you know someone who deserves to be recognized by President Obama?
In order for an individual to be considered for the Medal:
- Nominees must be citizens of the United States, as required by the 1969 Executive Order
- The nominee’s service must have been performed outside of their regular job
- All questions on this form must be fully answered
- Nominations must be received by Sunday, March 31, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. ET
