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 who has 10 or more years of experience and has:

  • Demonstrated exceptional leadership and dedication to public power.
  • Brought their organization to a new level of excellence.
  • Led by example.
  • Inspired their employees and fellow staff to improve processes, services, and operations.

The Public Power Lifetime Achievement Award Committee will select award recipients. Each year, the committee impartially evaluates entries to recognize individuals for providing exceptional service to their public power communities.
