Awards Categories and Criteria
Beginning in 1993, each of the ten NCSL staff sections were given the opportunity to recognize among their membership two legislative staff or agencies who have made outstanding contributions to their legislatures and to the staff section. The award was established through the Legislative Staff Coordinating Committee as a means of recognizing excellence in service to state legislatures. In addition to the staff section honorees, the NCSL Staff Chair may select up to two additional award recipients.
