Your Oklahoma City chapter of the United Nations Association is seeking
nominations for our 2015 Public Service Award. You are invited to
nominate someone you know.
The award is designed to honor a
public sector worker who deserves
to be recognized for their great
service to the people of Oklahoma.
Perhaps you can think of a colleague
or co-worker who is under-
appreciated or who never gets
all the recognition they truly deserve.

child labor law enforcement for the
Oklahoma Department of Labor.
Brandi Woods-Littlejohn, a program manager in the office of Oklahoma
Attorney General Scott Pruitt. Ms. Woods-Littlejohn is the project director

Workers who are eligible for nomination would include any current employee

to excellence and innovation in public service; and (2) The manner in
which the employee's efforts help to illustrate the global community's
common commitment to "social progress" and "better standards of life."
