Each year the Upstate History Alliance gives annual Awards of Merit to recognize outstanding work in the regional history and museum community, reward staff and volunteers, and provide encouragement for development of new and innovative projects. These awards will presented to recipients on Sunday April 11 at the opening reception of the 2010 Museums in Conversation Conference in Albany, sponsored by the Upstate History Alliance and the Museum Association of New York. Any organization or individual is invited to nominate an organization, person(s) or project that was completed in 2009 in New York State for an Award of Merit. Nomination of oneself or one’s organization is permissible and encouraged.
The postmark deadline for submitting a proposal is December 11, 2009. Visit www.upstatehistory.org for nomination procedures and to download the nomination form.
Questions should be directed to UHA Program Coordinator, Stephanie Lehner, at 800.895.1648 [email protected]
