Jefferson Awards

The Jefferson Awards Foundation was created in 1972 by the American Institute for Public Service. The Jefferson Awards are given at both national and local levels. Local winners are ordinary people who do extraordinary things without expectation of recognition.

WBBJ-TV ABC 7, along with Leaders Credit Union, is proud to bring the Jefferson Awards to West Tennessee.  

Do you have a relative, a friend or a co-worker who is having an impact in our West Tennessee community? Nominate Here. In every neighborhood, there are "Unsung Heroes" - volunteers and paid professionals who go well beyond their expected duties.  Together with Leaders Credit Union, WBBJ wants to highlight and honor these "Unsung Heroes."
