The Rotary Club of Ithaca invites Ithaca community members to recognize employees whose outstanding work performance in their organization is “above and beyond the call of duty” and is instrumental in the achievement of the organization’s performance goals.

A panel of Ithaca Rotarians will select the award winners based on the information provided and the employee’s longevity and how he/she embodies the spirit of the business/organization. Preference may be given to those who have not been recognized for their workmanship in the past.
