MINNESOTA HISTORY AWARDS
From exhibitions to organizational capacity building, Minnesota has been a national leader in public history but did not have a sanctioned awards program to identify this work until 2009, when the Minnesota History Awards were created by the Minnesota Alliance of Local History Museums. In addition to highlighting those who have achieved excellence, the program intends to use the example of winners to show the rest of our peers how it can be done, with the goal of raising the quality of everyone’s work.
How to Apply
