Historical Museum Accepting Nominations for 2014 Voices of a City Award

The Greensboro Historical Museum Inc. invites nominations of individuals or organizations for the 2014 Voices of a City Award, an honor recognizing significant and original contributions to local history. Nominations will be accepted through July 1.

Projects can be as varied as oral history projects, photography, film, student research, published articles, books, film, electronic media, etc. Collectors of historical documents or artifacts are also eligible, and self-nominations are welcome. Submissions by high school and college students will be judged in a separate category.

Nominations should include a letter and at least one example of work for consideration, provided in both hard copy and CD/DVD format. Submissions will be evaluated by the Historical Museum’s Community Advisory Board on these criteria: project originality and significance, innovation, quality of research within current academic scholarship, sources consulted, and accessibility to Greensboro community and beyond.
