Celebrate Public Service Recognition Week, May 5-11

Collins plays the guitar

NIH troubadour-in-chief Dr. Francis Collins sings of his regard for public service.

Each year the President and Congress designate the first full week of May as Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) to honor government employees.

Spread the word about NIH during Public Service Recognition Week and show your NIH pride. Tell why you serve by participating in NIH’s PSRW social media campaign. Follow these guidelines:  

  • Take a photo with your completed “I Heart Public Service” whiteboard template (found at https://hr.nih.gov/about/events/psrw).
  • Post photo on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the following: #NIH, #PSRW and #Proud2ServeUSA. The NIH hashtag allows viewers to find NIH employees. 
  • You can also send your photo to NIHPSRW@nih.gov. Images will be posted on NIH social media outlets. 

Another way to share in the spirit of PSRW is by thanking others for their service. Give a colleague a Public Service Star Award for his/her great work. A printable template of the Star Award can be found on https://hr.nih.gov/about/events/psrw
