Entry applications may be obtained by contacting the Office of the Clerk to the Board of Supervisors at 703-324-3151, TTY 711,  by e-mail or online

The award is named for Lawrence V. Fowler, a volunteer who served for 41 years on the Fairfax County Consumer Protection Commission (CPC) and its predecessor. He was instrumental in many of the commission’s initiatives, including drafting ordinances, position papers and reports for the protection of consumers and developing the CPC Web page. In 1990, he received the Distinguished Public Service Leadership Award for Dedicated Service to the Citizens of Fairfax County.  Last year’s award went to Peter J. Murphy Jr., longtime chairman of the Fairfax County Planning Commission.
