The Wyoming State Historical Society and its federation of statewide chapters seeks nominations of students and teachers who have done outstanding work in preserving and interpreting Wyoming history during the last year.

Nomination postmark deadline is June 1. See the Awards Manual for details.

The Young Historian Category recognizes original projects by students in elementary, junior high and high school. Projects produced will be judged on new or previously unpublished information obtained through interviews or research or can be a creative presentation of previously known facts or information. Junior Activities Awards might include a student or group of students who have researched and explored an historic site in their county which may have led to the marking of a site. Students may have promoted educational activities that promote a better understanding of local and/or state history.

For specific information categories that honor students and/or educators, review the Awards Manual or contact Linda Fabian at linda@wyshs.org to receive an electronic copy.
