Nominations for American Association for State and Local History (AASLH)'s Leadership in History Awards are due March 1. It usually takes at least two-three weeks to put together a great nomination, so don't wait to get started! Nominations are reviewed by a national committee in the summer of 2016 with formal presentation of the awards made during the AASLH Annual Meeting, September 14-17, in Detroit, Michigan.
The AASLH Leadership in History Awards Program recognizes exemplary work completed by state or federal historical societies, institutions, or agencies; regional, county, or local historical societies, institutions, or agencies; specialized subject societies in related fields such as oral history, genealogy, folklore, archaeology, etc.; junior historical societies; privately owned museums or foundations; individuals; and organizations outside the field of traditional historical agencies. Awards are given for exhibits, public and educational programming, special projects, publications, multimedia, and individual achievement. Nominees need not be members of AASLH to qualify.
