The American Association for State and Local History bestows Leadership in History Awards to establish and encourage standards of excellence in the collection, preservation, and interpretation of state and local history in order to make the past more meaningful to all Americans. By publicly recognizing superior and innovative achievements, the Leadership in History Awards serve as an inspiration to others in the field.
If you would like to nominate an organization or person for a Leadership in History award, then complete a Leadership in History Nomination Form and submit it to your AASLH State Leadership Team Leader. Do not send nominations to the AASLH office. A nominee does not have to be an AASLH member to apply and self-nominations are encouraged.
If you would like a form mailed to you, please contact the AASLH office at (615) 320-3203 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for submission is March 1 of each year. Please send nomination information to your State Leadership Team Leader. Questions? Contact Bethany Hawkins, AASLH at 615-320-3203 or email email@example.com.
