Proclamations may be awarded by the Governor’s Office on a case by case basis with the goal of honoring and celebrating events or increasing awareness of noteworthy issues among citizens across Kentucky. Proclamations must be requested by Kentucky residents. These public service documents are strictly honorary and are not legally binding. If statistics are included in your request, the requestor must provide independent third party documentation to support those statistics. The Governor’s Office reserves the right to decline any request for a proclamation as well as the right to make exceptions to the Guidelines Procedures for Proclamations.
Acclamations are official documents issued by the Governor’s Office to commemorate a specific time period (day, week, or month) for the purpose of raising awareness about an issue or celebrating milestones.
