A 60-day public comment Notice was published in the Federal Register on May 30, 2007. This comment period ended July 30, 2007. No public comments were received from this notice.

Description: The Spirit of Service Awards enable the Corporation to recognize exceptional organizations and program participants from each of the Corporation's three programs, Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America. The Corporation plans to continue to utilize specific nomination guidelines for each of the programs and follow a formal nomination process, which involves voluntary information collections from non-government individuals.

Since 2004 the Corporation has honored distinguished individuals and organizations with the Spirit of Service Awards. Prior to 2003, AmeriCorps recognized its outstanding members annually through the All-AmeriCorps Awards, which were initiated in 1999 and presented by President Clinton as part of the 5th anniversary celebration of the program. Senior Corps had recognized its outstanding projects and volunteers at its own national conference, and Learn and Serve America through its Leader School selection and the President's Student Service Awards.
