2017 Sammies Finalists

People’s Choice Award


It’s your turn to vote! While our Sammies selection committee helps us choose seven award winners from 27 outstanding finalists, we also want to know who you think has made the most admirable contribution to the American people.

Submit your votes for our People’s Choice honoree to be announced on July 19 during an event with the 2018 finalists and Sammies alumni at the Partnership for Public Service.

How it Works

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

You may vote for as many finalists as you want, and you may submit your votes once per day. Throughout the voting period, we will narrow the field and reset the poll for the remaining top contenders.

Be sure to vote for your favorites often to keep them in the running for additional recognition.
