People Interested in Manitoba History Can Receive a Special Award.

The Manitoba Historical Society is accepting nominations for the Lieutenant Governor’s Award.  The Society’s Gordon Goldsborough says nominations are open to anyone who has done work in some form of historic preservation and promotion of the province’s history and it can be really quite wide ranging, maybe it’s involved with the development or the operation of a museum, maybe it’s the development of a history book, there’s so many ways it could be used. He adds there’s also additional supplementary material that should accompany the nomination noting there should be for example letters of reference, people who are prepared to support the nomination, newspaper clippings or some other documents.


Previous recipients have included Flin Flonners Don Peake and Gerry Clark who received this award for their work in preserving and promoting the history of Flin Flon.


Nomination forms and more information are available on the websites of the Manitoba Historical Society www.mhs.mb.ca or the Lieutenant Governor at www.manitobalg.ca.  The deadline is February 28th.
