Kids On Right Track
March 2, 2011 Eason Ramson was nominated for the Jefferson Award – a prestigious national recognition system honoring
community and public service in America. Philanthropists such as Bill Gates and Oprah Winfrey have also
been honored with this award.
The Jefferson Awards are presented on the national and local level. The Jefferson
Awards has over 150 Media Partners in over 90 communities across the country. A local panel of judges selects the winners
who are grassroots. These Media Partners are major local newspapers, television and radio stations. Most Media Partners honor
a volunteer each monthly or weekly. Some honor five or six at an annual ceremony.
