This Award recognizes and publicizes excellence by members of the public, researchers, educators, archivists, curators, institutions, organizations, tribes, or government agencies for meritorious accomplishments related to historical and archival records. During September 2018 the ASHRAB will consider outstanding projects that merit a Certificate of Archival Excellence Award. Categories under consideration include, but are not limited to:

  • Documentary project
  • Exhibit or public event
  • Milestone projects (motion picture film preservation, etc.)
  • Rescue event (endangered records preserved)
  • Innovative projects (something new and trailblazing)

The ASHRAB solicits and encourages submittals of award nominations for significant projects. Individuals, institutions (libraries, historical societies, museums), agencies (local, state, federal), tribes and Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act corporations, and organizations (Red Cross, Rotary, business groups) are encouraged to submit nominations by email or mail, describing the significance of the nominee’s work. No self-nominations will be accepted. To make a nomination, please send a one to two-page written nomination to the ASHRAB Coordinator by Sept. 5, 2018.
