What Winners and Finalists say about winning the UNPSA


United Nations Public Service Day

The UN General Assembly, in its Resolution 57/277, designated 23 June as Public Service Day (A/RES/57/277). The UN Public Service Day intends to celebrate the value and virtue of public service to the community; highlight the contribution of public service in the development process; recognize the work of public servants, and encourage young people to pursue careers in the public sector. Since the first Awards Ceremony in 2003, the United Nations has received an increasing number of submissions from all around the world.

United Nations Public Service Award Initiatives

UNPAN receives hundreds of submissions every year for the prestigious UN Public Service Awards. For the benefit of policy makers at the national, regional and international levels; the academic community, NGOs; the private sector; as well as nominees, we have made available a number of past UN Public Service Awards initiatives that had been pre-selected for the final round of evaluation by the Committee of Experts on Public Administration. These cases have not been edited and they do not imply any expression of opinion on the part of the United Nations.
