Nominations For The Eighth Annual Governor’s Heritage Awards
Tuesday April 3, 2007
The Vermont Folklife Center and Vermont Life Magazine are requesting nominations for the eighth annual Governor’s Heritage Awards. These awards recognize exemplary Vermonters whose work as artists and educators perpetuates the state’s cultural heritage. The Vermont Folklife Center and Vermont Life Magazine co-sponsor these awards to foster the preservation of and support for Vermont’s traditional culture.
The Governor’s Heritage Awards honors two categories: educators who are dynamic and involve students in heritage, history, and cultural identity in innovative ways; and traditional artists whose work exemplifies a commitment to perpetuating an art form that has deep roots in their family or community. Governor Douglas is strongly committed to preserving Vermont’s heritage and recognizes the significance of these awards.
Anyone who is well acquainted with the work of an artist or educator may submit a nomination. The nominations are due by Friday, April 6, 2007. Governor Jim Douglas will announce the awardees on May 16th at a ceremony in the Cedar Creek Room of the State House in Montpelier.
Nomination forms are available from the Vermont Folklife Center, 3 Court Street, Box 442, Middlebury, VT, 05753, by calling 802-388-4964, or on-line at www.vermontfolklifecenter.org. The Vermont Folklife Center is a non-profit organization that documents and preserves the voices and traditions of Vermont.
