5th Annual Heritage Awards

Museums of Western Colorado to Host 5th Annual Heritage Awards

The Museums of Western Colorado (MWC) will honor the recipients of the 2017 Annual Heritage Awards on March 7, 2017. The Heritage Awards celebrate the contributions of community members toward fulfilling the Museum’s mission of discovering, preserving, and sharing the heritage of the Grand Valley.

The MWC relies on others in the community, either in cooperation with the museum or individually, to help fulfill this very important mission. It is an honor and privilege for us to be able to recognize leaders and organizations who have contributed so significantly to the community’s heritage.

Awards are given to businesses and individuals in several categories; nominations will be accepted through Jan. 18.  We will be honoring people and organizations in six areas:

• Historian Award

• George Callison Paleontological Award

• Heritage Enterprise Award

• Museums Service Award

• Preservation Award

• Archeological Award

For information on how to nominate someone, go here or call Peter Booth at 970.242.0971, ext. 2204.

The awards ceremony will be held from 6-8 pm March 7 at Colorado Mesa University Ballroom.
