State employees recognized at Governor’s Awards for Excellence

HELENA, Mont. – More than 200 state employees from across Montana were recognized on Monday for their work at the Governor’s Awards for Excellence.

Governor Steve Bullock presented the awards to both teams and individual people.

They represented agencies ranging from the Montana Historical Society and Military Affairs to Public Health and Human Services and the School for the Deaf and Blind.

According to the Department of Administration, the awards are for state government employees who go above and beyond, save Montana money, and make others’ lives easier.

For example, this year a group of Fish, Wildlife and Parks employees were recognized for their response to the Chronic Wasting Disease outbreak.

This is the 29th year the awards have been given out.
