The Virginia Hart award’s emphasis is on recognizing “unsung heroines” in state service, thus providing encouragement and recognition to all women in state government. The award seeks to recognize women who share the following qualities: esteem from peers; acceptance of responsibility beyond the limits of the nominee’s job description; sustained, extraordinary achievement of assigned tasks; performance recognition from clients; community service; self-improvement; and overcoming handicaps to performance.​


2020 marks the 37th annual presentation of the Virginia Hart Award.  Due to COVID-19 precautions, the award will be presented virtually this year via a recorded presentation that will debut on October 30th, 2020.
