BACKGROUND:
The San Mateo County STARS Awards was established in 2006 to recognize programs for their outstanding contributions to the organization and our community. The program initially began with the Program Performance and Customer Service award categories. In 2008 the Green and Employee Suggestion award categories were added to recognize sustainability efforts and employees that offer innovative ideas that improve County services. In 2016, the Diversity award was added to recognize programs that promote inclusion and diversity.

DISCUSSION:
This year's STARS Awards program was open during the fall of 2019. Twelve (12) program entries were submitted and all entries were evaluated by review teams based on established criteria. The programs with the highest score in each category are recommended to receive awards. (The Employee Suggestion award category will be offered in 2020 via an Employee Innovation Summit.)

The winning programs are listed below and a full description is attached.
