The Idaho Medal of Achievement is designed to recognize citizens demonstrating exceptional, meritorious and inspirational service to the people of Idaho. It is the highest civilian honor Idaho bestows.
Made of 99.9-percent fine solid silver donated by northern Idaho’s Hecla Mining Co., the Idaho Medal of Achievement is meant as a lasting tribute to the civic virtue of those who go above and beyond what is expected of responsible citizens in support of their neighbors, communities, and our state.
Idaho is replete with volunteers, first responders, philanthropists and everyday heroes of every description; the Idaho Medal of Achievement is intended to reward the most noteworthy among them with special recognition.
