Florida TaxWatch announced the winners today for the Prudential Productivity Award. Going the extra mile for taxpayers, the Guardian Ad Litem Program and the Florida State Park System GIS Team won the top cash prizes.  

The Prudential Productivity Awards brings recognition to state employees who reduce taxpayer costs and progress statewide services. Director of Communications Chris Berry praised the Guardian Ad Litem Program for providing courtroom representation to 470 abused children.

“The Guardian Ad Litem Program launched the Defending Best Interests Project, providing through a partnership through the Florida Bar free private representation on pellet cases to dependent children," Berry said.

The Prudential Productivity Award Winners will be celebrated on June 5th at the Ruby Diamond Concert Hall. Florida State University Football Alumni and Heismen trophy winner Charlie Ward will speak following the ceremony.
