Thomas S. Green Public Service Awards

Events and Forums Open to the Public

In 1987, when Tom Green, a distinguished civic leader, former Vice President of Norton Company, and a founder of The Research Bureau passed away, we honored his memory by establishing the Thomas S. Green Public Service Awards for outstanding public servants. Since 1988, The Research Bureau has recognized over 100 “unsung heroes” in municipal government for their commitment to making Worcester and nearby communities better places to live and work.

2021 NOMINATION FORM

(Please return no later than Friday, March 26, 2021)

The Thomas S. Green Public Service Awards honor employees from city/town government, public school districts, and regional governmental agencies who have made outstanding contributions. The awards publicly recognize the efforts of public servants who illustrate:

  • Exceptional competence and efficient handling of all assigned responsibilities
  • Enthusiastic performance of tasks above and beyond the call of duty
  • Cooperative, helpful, and friendly attitude toward the public and fellow employees
  • Community involvement outside the scope of job-related responsibilities

Nominees should have a minimum of five years employment with the city/town government, school district, or regional governmental agency in Worcester County and should be actively employed at the time of the nomination. Department and division heads are not eligible for the award. Candidates nominated in previous years who did not receive the award may be re-nominated.

Please use the form below to submit your nomination, or download the PDF form here, and mail to: Worcester Regional Research Bureau, 500 Salisbury Street, Worcester MA 01609.
