B.C. Heritage Award
Any person who fulfills the award criteria may be nominated. Nominees should have a minimum of 10 years involvement with heritage concerns in the province, and have made personal contributions to the field well beyond the terms of any heritage-related employment. Their efforts to preserve, promote, interpret, or otherwise encourage heritage conservation and awareness should demonstrate either exceptional diversity or a strong focus on a specific discipline. Improved public understanding and appreciation of British Columbia's heritage should be a consequence of their endeavors.
Nominations can be made by any individual or organization. The nomination should include: a signed cover letter; a detailed (one page) statement about the nominee's eligibility and contribution to heritage; attachments, if any, such as letters of support, press clippings and other relevant material; contact information (telephone, email, and postal address) for both the nominee and the nominator.
Annual nominations must be received by September 15.
The British Columbia Heritage Award is administered by Heritage BC. For more information please contact Rick Goodacre
