The National Council on Public History invites nominations for their Outstanding Public History Project Award.
Acknowledging the value of historical understanding to the general public, and the fact that this understanding results from a variety of public history projects, the National Council on Public History’s Outstanding Public History Project Award recognizes excellence in work completed within the previous two calendar years (2013 and 2014) that contributes to a broader public reflection and appreciation of the past or that serves as a model of professional public history practice.
The annual Outstanding Public History Project Award consists of a $1,000 cash prize and a certificate presented at the NCPH Annual Meeting. Award winners also receive complimentary registration for the awards breakfast.
Individuals or organizational entities responsible for the project may nominate themselves, be nominated by others familiar with the project, or be nominated by the award selection committee itself. The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2014.
