Nominate a History Hero

State History’s Annual Awards recognize individuals and groups who have made a significant contribution to history, prehistory, or historic preservation in the state of Utah. Whether these efforts on behalf of the past are quiet or prominent, they benefit the state’s citizens in very real ways.

State History invites nominations of persons or organizations who have given extraordinary service or completed outstanding projects. Winners will be honored at the 60th Annual Utah State History Conference evening reception on Thursday, September 20, 2012.
Members of the public may make nominations in these categories:

            Outstanding Contribution Award: For outstanding, long-term contribution to archaeology, preservation, or history in Utah. The award may be given to groups or individuals.

            Outstanding Achievement Award: For an outstanding project or activity in the field of Utah archaeology, preservation, or history, or in support of one of Utah’s heritage organizations. This achievement may include research, preservation, education, fundraising, community programs, volunteerism, journalism, or other activities.

Nominations are due by May 1, 2012. For more information and a nomination form, please visit http://history.utah.gov, or call Alycia Aldrich at 801.533.3556.
