Nominate a historian for award

Do you know someone whose excellence in recording history is deserving of praise?
Why not nominate that person for recognition by the North Carolina Society of Historians? You might be the one.
The society is conducting its annual competition to bring special honors to state, regional and local historians and genealogists who excel in the collection and preservation of Tar Heel history. Awards will be presented at the society’s annual program in October to winning authors, publishers or creators of history books, historical fiction, DVDs, journals, newsletters, magazine and newspaper articles and museums.
Subjects may range from general history to histories of families and churches. Except in the Historian of the Year category, nominees need not be residents of North Carolina. Deadline for nominations is June 30.
A detailed list of categories may be viewed on the NCSH website ncsocietyofhistorians.org There are no nomination fees, and a nominee need not to be a member of the North Carolina Society of Historians. Each nomination must be submitted on an official form which may be downloaded from the website. Forms also may be secured online at ncsh@earthlink.net or geneslady@charter.net or through U.S. mail by sending your request to Elizabeth Sherrill, president, NCSH, Inc. P.O. Box 93, Sherrills Ford, NC 28673-0093.
