The Manitoba Historical Society is accepting nominations for the Lieutenant Governor’s Award. The award recognizes people interested in the preservation and promotion of the province’s history. The Society’s Gordon Goldsborough says nominations are open to anyone. He explains what they are looking for is people who have been involved in their community for a long period of time promoting the history of the community. He says it might be in the way of the museum, it might be because they’ve helped put together a community history book, they could have led tours so there is a number of things they could have done or maybe they’ve done many of these things.
Nomination forms and more information on the award are available on their website www.mhs.mb.ca. Nominations close on February 27th.
