The Bureau of Global Public Affairs launched the Citizen Diplomacy Award in 2017. The award was created to celebrate the significant, beneficial contributions of U.S. citizens and organizations to furthering U.S. foreign policy objectives and strengthening relationships around the world. Award-winning “citizen diplomats” have exhibited leadership in generating impactful, long-term support for U.S. foreign policy and public diplomacy objectives. The annual award ceremony is held in the State Department’s Harry S Truman building in Washington, DC.
