NEWS: Nominate A History Hero!

Nominate A History Hero!

Utah 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 tangible and intangible ways. Utah State History therefore invites nominations of persons or organizations who have given extraordinary service or completed outstanding projects.  

All projects must be completed within the past two years prior to nomination. Organizational nominations should include description of organization, mission, and programs. Documentation should accompany the form and should include a minimum of two letters of support, photos of project, exhibits, or visual arts, or copies of articles, books, videos, or scripts.
Nominations are due by May 3, 2013. All award applications and documentation will be reviewed by State History staff. Management team will send summary and recommendations to the Board of State History for final selection of award winners. Awards will be presented at the 61st Annual Utah State History Conference, to be held September 5 – 8, 2013.
You 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 outstanding project or activity in the field of Utah archaeology, preservation or history, or in support of one of Utah’s heritage organizations.  May include research, preservation, education, fundraising, community programs, volunteerism, journalism or other activities.
Additional information and a nomination form can be found on our website at www.history.utah.gov.  For questions, please call Lisa Buckmiller at (801) 245-7231 or email lbuckmiller@utah.gov.
