Malstrom Awards
Nomination Invitation
With this letter we invite individuals
and groups to submit nominations for these awards to help promote recognition
of heritage projects and preserve our historic places, artifacts, community and
family histories.  The League's Malstrom
Awards are offered to reward outstanding contributions to the field of local
history in Snohomish County.  The purpose of the awards are to increase public
awareness, and to encourage and expand sharing of experience, skills and
resources Snohomish County heritage activities.  We welcome applications of all types to help
recognize those that may go unnoticed outside of our local communities.
Eligible activities include historic preservation of
architecture or cultural sites, historical or genealogical research, exhibits, publications
(print and online) and museum work.  While
an individual may be named to represent the project, it is the project itself
and not the individual for which the award is made.  
To be eligible the project 
·        must have been completed in current calendar year
·        must be either independent (for example, a book, exhibit, or historic
building restoration) or a clearly identifiable portion of a larger project.)  
The criteria the award will be based on: 
·           Providing new or unique historic information, interpretation or
·           Contributing to the preservation or interpretation of Snohomish County history
·           Use of  best museum, research or
digital practices
·           Effective collaboration with other community organizations such as
school groups, government agencies, service clubs, libraries as additional outreach.
·           Creative use of resources which may include funding, donated materials
or services, consultants or staffing.
The League will ask an out-of-county historical
group to judge and select the winning project.  The award will be announced at the League's annual banquet and meeting January 30th,  2010 (not the 23rd, Mark your calendars!).
answer the following questions fully and completely.  Include with the completed nomination any
additional supporting documentation and photographs which you feel will assist
the judges in evaluating the project.  We
may want to use information provided for possible publicity purposes to promote
heritage related activities to the media and general public.
