Albertans still have time to honour local “heritage heroes” with the extension of the nomination deadline for the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation Heritage Awards.
The deadline has been extended to Aug. 15 in response to late inquiries from stakeholders. Nominations will be accepted in five categories: heritage conservation, heritage awareness, outstanding achievement and, new for the 2018 awards, Indigenous heritage and youth heritage.
The AHRF Heritage Awards are presented every two years and recognize the outstanding achievements of Albertans engaged in heritage preservation, protection and promotion. Since 2005, 58 awards have been presented to recipients from across the province.
Full details and nomination forms are available online at alberta.ca/heritage-awards. The 2018 recipients will be recognized at the awards ceremony in Edmonton on Oct. 25.
