All nominations must be received by close of business Friday, Aug. 1, 2014.

The Kentucky History Awards recognize outstanding achievements by historians, public history professionals, volunteers, business and civic leaders, communities and historical organizations throughout the Commonwealth. Individuals and communities across the state are encouraged each year to nominate projects and individuals for their efforts to promote the preservation, awareness and appreciation of state and local history.

“The Kentucky History Awards provide an opportunity for Kentucky’s individuals and community groups to share their great projects and programs,” said Stuart Sanders, KHS professional services administrator. “Their work significantly enhances our understanding of Kentucky history and deserves statewide recognition.”

Nominated projects must have been initiated or completed between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2013, and must either pertain to some aspect of Kentucky’s state or local history, or must be sponsored by or benefiting a museum, historical society, genealogical society or other history related organization in Kentucky. An applicant may self nominate and may nominate more than one project, individual or group.
