Every Montana community has someone it looks to tell them about their history and to protect their historic documents, artifacts and important sites. Who’s that person in your community?
Now that you have a name in mind, consider nominating him or her for the Montana Heritage Keepers Awards. The award, given by the Montana Historical Society’s Board of Trustees, will be presented at the Society’s Montana History Conference, September 21, in Helena.
The awards honor individuals, families, organizations, educators, historians and others whose efforts have had a significant impact on generating interest in and the preservation of Montana history and heritage at the local, area or statewide level.
The nominees must be Montanans who have demonstrated commitment to a significant state history goal that goes beyond the confines of making a livelihood for themselves.
Nominations must be received no later than April 1 and include narrative and examples of the work the nominee has done including such things as newspaper articles, letters of support from the community and award.
