2016 Sammies Finalists

People’s Choice Award


From more than 350 nominations, we identified and announced 32 inspiring Sammies finalists. While an official selection committee votes for the eight category award winners, we also want to hear from you.

Submit your votes for our People’s Choice honoree to be announced at the 2016 Sammies gala on September 20 in Washington, D.C. The Partnership will also coordinate a special gathering at the winner’s agency to celebrate with his or her team following the gala.


How it Works

Read the finalists’ profiles to learn about their accomplishments, then vote for your top picks using the Facebook Poll on this page.

You may vote for as many finalists as you want, but you will only be able to submit your votes once per day.

Anyone may participate, but you must have an active Facebook account in order to submit your vote.

Voting will close on September 9, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. EST.


Spread the Word

After casting your votes, encourage others to do the same! Share your favorites with your social media network and tell your friends and colleagues about these amazing federal employees and their inspiring accomplishments.
