The United Nations Public Service Awards 2024 is a prestigious international recognition of excellence in public service. It rewards the creative achievements and contributions of public service institutions that lead to a more effective and responsive public administration in countries worldwide.

Since the first Awards Ceremony in 2003, the United Nations has received an increasing number of submissions from all around the world.
