Secretary of State Griswold to Bestow Five NASS Medallion Awards to Those Who Impacted Colorado’s Elections
On Friday January 29th, 2021, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold will award National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) Medallion Awards to five individuals/organizations who made significant contributions to the success of the 2020 General Election in Colorado, which featured unprecedented challenges including a global pandemic, forest fires across the state, and rampant disinformation.
In a special virtual ceremony, Secretary Griswold will recognize the League of Women Voters of Colorado, as well as Sara Rosene, Grand County Clerk; Kathy Simillion, Gunnison County Clerk; Josh Zygielbaum, Adams County Clerk; and Christopher Krebs, former Director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA).
Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold stated, “The Colorado chapter of the League of Women Voters has worked tirelessly for years to inform and educate voters to promote civic engagement. They play an invaluable role in Colorado’s elections. I’m happy to recognize their enormous achievements while also extending my profound thanks for their hard work in making sure the elections in 2020 went so well."
The NASS Medallion Award allows individual Secretaries of State to recognize outstanding service and dedication to furthering the mission of the National Association of Secretaries of State within each state. The NASS Medallion Award was created to honor individuals, groups, or organizations with an established record of promoting the goals of NASS in one or more of the following areas: elections, with special emphasis on voter education and participation; civic education; service to state government, specifically as it relates to the duties of the office of the Secretary of State; a business or individual whose philanthropic contributions have significantly enhanced the quality of life in a local or regional area within a state, or within an entire state.
