Public Service Recognition Week, observed nationally the first full week in May, calls attention to the broad range of services provided by public servants and encourages others to seek a public service career.

In observance of this week, the city of Houston holds a poster contest that spotlights municipal jobs as the artists illustrate what job they would want to perform as a city employee. The PSRW competition builds children's knowledge of municipal careers and brings families together through art.
