The Edward M. Kennedy Institute Award for Inspired Leadership
“What counts in our leadership is not the length of years in Washington, but the reach of our vision, the strength of our beliefs, and that rare quality of mind and spirit that can call forth the best in our country and the best in the world.” -Senator Edward M. Kennedy

The Inspired Leadership Award was created to recognize an individual or individuals who reflects the best leadership qualities of Senator Edward M. Kennedy himself, an exemplary leader who made a difference throughout his life and career by service to his country and community and inspired others to be civically engaged. The award recognizes an individual who reflects the distinct qualities of the legacy of Senator Kennedy.
