Presented annually since 1958, The Hundred Year Association recognizes outstanding public service by New York City leaders and the outstanding achievements of New York City career municipal employees with The Isaac Liberman Public Service Awards, named after the Association’s founder.
Since 1971, the Association has also recognized academic excellence and community service by the sons and daughters of City employees with The E. Virgil Conway College Scholarships.
The monetary awards — which range in amount from $6,000 to $1,000 — are sponsored by Association members and supporters who join with the Mayor and commissioners in presenting their awards at City Hall.
In 1958, the Association established its program to recognize outstanding New York City career civil service employees for dedication well beyond their job description, measurably improving efficiency and quality of service to New York City residents and workers, and for significantly enhancing the prestige of New York City in the eyes of the public.
Named for the Association’s founder, the Isaac Liberman Public Service Awards symbolize the close partnership between the New York City private sector and city government. Individual cash awards range from $6,000 to $1,000. All nominations include a written endorsement by agency heads and winners are selected by the Association’s Awards Committee.
Award sponsors join the Mayor and commissioners in presenting their awards at City Hall and are honored as part of the Association’s Governor’s Council.

The Association’s college scholar program was founded in 1971 to assist academically qualified sons and daughters of career civil service employees in obtaining a college education. Selection is based on scholastic achievement, leadership and commitment, and a record of school and community service.
College scholars are determined by the awards committee, based on written applications from approximately 150 high school seniors and college students. Eligibility requires that a parent be a permanent civil service employee and that the gross family income is less that $93,000.
College scholarships range from $6,000 to $1,000. The top award is named a Charles E. Inniss College Scholar in memory of an officer of National Grid (formerly KeySpan Energy) who was dedicated to education and community service in New York City.
