The Liberty Bell Award was established more than 40 years ago to acknowledge outstanding community service. Many groups present it to someone who has promoted better understanding of the rule of law, encouraged greater respect for law and the courts, stimulated a sense of civic responsibility, or contributed to good government in the community. It is often presented to an individual lawyer or judge or to an entire community organization.
This handsome plaque consists of a bronze-relief replica of the Liberty Bell, mounted on an attractive walnut shield (8 1/8" square and 1/2" thick). Bronze bas-relief name-plate (4" x 1 1/4") included for engraving.
