The JLS created the Dorothy Stimson Bullitt Community Service Award in 1989 to recognize outstanding achievement in the area of community service. Each year, the award honors an Active or Sustaining Junior League member who has enriched the lives of her neighbors and community at large through extraordinary volunteer public service.

Dorothy Stimson Bullitt was a charter member of the Junior League of Seattle, civic leader, women’s advocate and the founder of the King Broadcasting Company. The Junior League of Seattle award is the only award she allowed to carry her name.
