State Historical Records Board seeks nominations for award

The Alaska State Historical Records Advisory Board presents a Certificate of Excellence Award to recognize and publicize archival excellence by individuals, institutions, agencies or organizations. On Sept. 25, the board will consider outstanding projects that merit an award.


Archival categories under consideration include, but are not limited to: Arrangement and Description; Milestone Projects (motion picture film preservation, format conversions); Exhibit or Public Event;

Publications, Guides and Finding Aids; Rescue Event (endangered records preserved); Disaster Response Activity (post flood, fire, earthquake); and Innovative Projects (something that has never been done before).

Individuals, institutions (libraries, historical societies, museums), agencies (local, state, federal), and organizations (Red Cross, Rotary, business groups) are encouraged to submit nominations to the State Archivist electronically or by mail, describing and documenting the individual or group’s significant contribution. No self-nominations will be accepted.

The award winner(s) will be announced Sept. 27 at the Museums Alaska-Alaska Historical Society Joint Annual Conference awards banquet in Haines. The winning recipient(s) will receive a plaque. Nominations must be received by Sept. 23.
