The 2015 Sammies Challenge


During this Thanksgiving season, we would like to take a moment to say thank you to the more than two million hardworking and dedicated federal employees who serve our country. Your innovative ideas and selfless commitment to public service help make our government the best in the world.

We also challenge you to help spread a culture of appreciation throughout your agency by nominating federal colleagues and employees for the 2015 Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals(Sammies). Every nomination is an opportunity to thank high performers you work with, especially at a time when other ways to reward outstanding employees may be limited.

Nominations are open through January 16 and all nominees receive a letter to thank them for their service and congratulate them on their accomplishments.

Start a Nomination Today >>

There is no limit to the number of nominations an agency or nominator may submit. The more nominations we receive, the more we can do to publicize the great work federal employees are doing each and every day.

Questions? Contact Amy Bortnick at or (202) 464-5382.
