Annual Awards Nominations

There are three awards given each year by Museums Alaska at the Annual Meeting: the Award for Excellence in the Museum Field, the Volunteer of the Year Award, and the President’s Award in Honor of Lifetime Achievement.  Award recipients will be announced at the Annual Awards Banquet at the Cordova conference.

Nominations are due to the Museums Alaska office no later than September 08, 2015 and should not exceed one page.

Award for Excellence in the Museum Field

Nominations for the Award for Excellence may be made for exceptional exhibits, collections care, planning, marketing, publications, significant improvements to physical plant, conservation, etc. To nominate an individual, museum or program, write a description explaining who or what you are nominating, how many people it affected, what contribution was made to the museum field, and any other significant details.

Volunteer of the Year Award

Nominations for the Volunteer of the Year Award acknowledge the crucial roles volunteers perform in our museum communities. Help us celebrate their importance to our success by nominating any volunteer, whether docent, a community supporter, or a member of your Board of Directors. They do not need to be members of Museums Alaska. Please nominate your volunteer by describing the tasks this volunteer performs, what the hourly time commitment has been, and how long this volunteer has been contributing. Describe contributions to other organizations if they are significant to cultural heritage.

President’s Award in Honor of Lifetime Achievement

Nominations for the President’s Award in Honor of Lifetime Achievement recognize the contributions of an individual over a career. Help us celebrate their contributions by nominating an individual who is departing the field, from all sectors of the field. They do not need to be members of Museums Alaska. Please describe your nominee’s work over the years, their impact on an institution or community, and the legacy they leave behind. Describe contributions to other organizations if they are significant to cultural heritage.
