The Ohio Citizen Action Howard M. Metzenbaum Award is the highest honor the organization can give. Since 1995 it has been presented to Ohio grassroots leaders who best reflect Sen. Metzenbaum’s example of principled tenacity.

When Howard M. Metzenbaum retired from the U.S. Senate in 1994, Ohio Citizen Action decided to honor him by presenting an award in his name. Throughout his service in the Senate, Senator Metzenbaum’s name was synonymous with fighting for what’s right.
