Honoring Our Public Servants.
Connecting Citizens with Their Government.

Celebrated the first week of May since 1985 (beginning on the first Sunday of the month), Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) is organized annually by the Public Employees Roundtable (PER)and its member organizations 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. We encourage government leaders and public servants from all backgrounds to participate by showing appreciation to their employees and colleagues and by sharing stories of excellence in public service.

Upcoming events taking place in Washington, D.C. during PSRW 2018 include the sixth annual Public Service 5K run/walk, Federal Workforce Day at the Washington Nationals, and a congressional breakfast to congratulate the finalists of the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals.
