Nominate Your Rising Stars and Distinguished Service Leaders

Do you work with someone who goes above and beyond for public power? Shine a light on them!

Nominations are open for the Public Power Rising Star Award and the Public Power Distinguished Service Award.

The Public Power Rising Star Award recognizes an up-and-coming leader who has less than 10 years of experience and who has made significant and sustained contributions to the electric utility industry and to public power specifically.

The Public Power Distinguished Service Award recognizes a leader with 10 or more years of experience who has demonstrated exceptional leadership and dedication to public power, and who has brought their organization to a new level of excellence, led by example, and inspired their employees and fellow staff to improve processes, services, and operations.

Award recipients will be selected by the Public Power Lifetime Achievement Award Committee, a group that works hard each year to seek out and recognize individuals who devote themselves to serving their public power communities each and every day.

Winners will be recognized and celebrated at the 2022 ElectriCities Annual Conference, August 8-10 in Cherokee, North Carolina.
