Louisiana State Civil Service is pleased to announce the release of its new
REMINDER – NOMINATIONS DUE THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2023
Entering into the 64th year of its annual program, the Louisiana Civil Service League has announced the call for nominations for the 2023 Charles E. Dunbar, Jr. Career Service Award. Since the inception of the program, more than 650 classified public employees have been awarded the Dunbar Career Service Award. Recognizing the tremendous contributions made to the state of Louisiana by classified employees, we encourage you to consider nominating one of your employees for this prestigious honor. Anyone who was a classified employee during the 2023 Calendar Year is eligible to be nominated.
The Dunbar Award is the highest honor classified state employees can receive for their service to the citizens of Louisiana. The Civil Service League bestows the award on local, state, and municipal civil service employees who distinguish themselves through unselfish service to the citizens of Louisiana. Nominees are judged on commitment to the classified service, contributions toward workplace improvement, personal initiative, and volunteer community service.
The award is named in honor of Charles E. Dunbar, Jr., who was responsible for spearheading the effort to establish a classified workforce that would be governed through merit system principles and founding the Louisiana Civil Service League.
