Nominees for the newly created Idaho Medal of Achievement, the state’s highest civilian honor, are being accepted through March 31. Nominations may be submitted on the governor’s office website and forms are also available from the office by mail.
Gov. Butch Otter created the award by executive order in November. It recognizes individual Idahoans for “exceptional, meritorious, and inspirational service” to the people of the state.
Nominations will be reviewed by a five-member commission who will refer up to five finalists to the governor for consideration by May 1. Nominees can be living or dead.
