City Service Awards Program
Are you interested in honoring city employees or elected officials who have faithfully served your community? Since 1926, the League of Kansas Municipalities (League) has promoted a city service awards program to recognize devoted public servants at a number of tenure levels.
The program includes the purchase of a gift for the employee or elected official from the enclosed catalog, a listing in the Service Awards program which is presented at the annual League conference, and an individualized certificate printed on parchment paper for each recipient.
Who is Eligible?
The League service award program is open to all League member cities and provides awards for the following years of city service:
• 8 years* • 15 years • 25 years • 35 years
• 10 years • 20 years • 30 years • 40 years & Up
City employees and elected officials are eligible for the program if they have completed the appropriate number of continuous service years prior to September 1, 2018.
*Only elected officials are eligible for recognition at the 8-year level. This level of recognition is a listing in the awards booklet only and does not have a corresponding gift package.
