It is with great pleasure the National Conference on Citizenship announces Rick Stengel will be honored as the 2010 Citizen of the Year at our Annual Conference on September 17 in Washington DC.

Stengel is managing editor of TIME Magazine and has played an integral role in elevating America’s dialogue on national and community service by integrating messages of service and volunteerism throughout the magazine and in three cover story features. He also played a key role in convening the ServiceNation Summit and serving as co-moderator of the Presidential Forum with Senators Barack Obama and John McCain on September 11, 2008. Stengel has also served as president and chief executive of the National Constitution Center.

The award recognizes a private citizen who has made exemplary contributions in championing civic participation. Former recipients include former Senator Harris Wofford, 9/11 Commission co-chair and former congressman Lee Hamilton, educational pioneer Irasema Salcido, and philanthropists Ray Chambers and Eugene Lang.

The 2010 NCoC theme is “BIG Citizenship: Citizens as Catalysts and Innovators” and will recognize the contributions of individuals to create societies that are informed, engaged, giving, and trusting.
