But it still reads rather like a promotional piece...--Piledhigheranddeeper (talk) 16:13, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

American Institute for Public Service[edit]

American Institute for Public Service currently redirects to this article. I think the relevant section of this article should be spun off to a separate article on the philanthropic (?) organization behind these awards. Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 11:24, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

[edit]

Anyway we'd be able to add the logo found here: http://utnews.utoledo.edu/artman2/uploads/1/webJefferson-Awards-logo.jpg - after reading the guidelines I am still not sure how to go about doing so. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Flyers1834 (talkcontribs) 18:26, 20 August 2013 (UTC)

Self-published references and notability[edit]

This article has just 6 references and 3 are to the official website. If this award is notable would it not be simple to provide ample coverage in national and international press? Hugh (talk) 05:01, 9 May 2014 (UTC)
