Call for Nominations

2018 Governor’s Humanities Awards

The Northern Marianas Humanities Council is accepting nominations for the 2018 Governor’s Humanities Awards.

This event, held annually in October as a part of CNMI Humanities Month, recognizes outstanding contributions to the humanities by individuals and organizations in the community.

Nominees should have a notable humanities achievement in the past year, as demonstrated in any of the following four categories:

  • Research and Publication in the Humanities;
  • Preservation of Traditional Cultural Practices;
  • Preservation of CNMI History; and
  • Outstanding Humanities Teacher (in both classroom and non-classroom settings).

A fifth category, Lifetime Achievement, recognizes significant contributions to the humanities over multiple decades.  This award may be given posthumously.

Download the nomination form and instructions or pick up a paper copy at the Council’s office in the Springs Plaza Building, Gualo Rai.

Nominations may be made by any member of the general public and are due no later than 4:30 p.m. on Friday, 12 October 2018.
