The Cliff Allenby Public Service Award honors exemplary state employees who have committed their lives to the service of California.
The award is named after Cliff Allenby, one of the state's most renowned and tenured public servants, who passed away in 2018. Allenby served six California Governors in a variety of roles and ran several state departments during his career.
Award nominations can be made by Cabinet-level secretaries. To be eligible, a state employee must have an accomplished record of at least 20 years of service. Winners are selected by the Governor's Office and announced during Public Service Recognition Week.
