In January 2012, the U.S. Embassy in Hungary launched an initiative to recognize active citizenship, implementing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s call for U.S. Embassies and Consulates to reward deeds of good citizenship around the world.   Ambassador Eleni Tsakopoulos Kounalakis presented 18 Active Citizenship Awards over her tenure at Embassy Budapest.  We are delighted that we have had the opportunity to recognize so many outstanding people and organizations.
