Governor General’s History Award for Excellence in Community Programming

Canada's History is looking for community-based history projects for the 2014 Governor General's History Award for Excellence in Community Programming. Applications are due August 1, 2014.

Two recipients (French and English) are awarded $2500 for their project, and a trip to Ottawa to receive their award at the Governor General's History Awards at Rideau Hall. Recipients also attend the Canada's History Forum and TD History-Makers Celebration Dinner, held in conjunction with the awards.

The award recognizes innovative projects that promote and encourage community engagement in history. Eligible projects include exhibits, preservation or restoration initiatives, oral histories, special events, or any other type of community programming. Projects should be completed within the past 18 months of the award deadline.
