*The Malstrom Award winner for 2010* -  Snohomish County Digital Map Overlay
Project [Digital Mapping Project]
Sponsor: Granite Falls Historical Society.  Fred Cruger, Project Director.
 Carolyn Davisson, President

>From The Malstrom Award Judging Committee ---- *The Snohomish County Digital
Map Overlay Project was exceptionally executed by the grass roots effort of
an all volunteer organization.  The commendable collaboration between
numerous Snohomish County heritage organizations and the United States
Forest Service strengthened the impact and broadened the project's scope
county wide, acting as a shared resource among multiple organizations.
Beyond Snohomish County, the presentation at AASLH provides a valuable model
for heritage organizations nation wide. This is a phenomenal, technological,
multi-layered research resource that aids Snohomish County with the
preservation and accessibility of valuable information embedded in vintage
maps.  It also stands as an impressive model for heritage organizations
throughout the nation.
*Publications Commendation
The winner of the Publications Commendation is “Etched In Stone – Dedicated
to the Young Men of Edmonds School District 15 Who Lost Their Lives to War”,
Betty Lou Gaeng, Sno-Isle Genealogical

>From The Malstrom Award Judging Committee - *This publication is a history
of the memorial monument located at the front entrance to the Edmonds
Historical Museum as well as a history of the young men whose names are
engraved in the monument.  This is a unique historical and genealogical
project and a fitting tribute of respect and remembrance for the young men
of WWI and WWII, neighbors, classmates, friends and family.  The publication
is a valuable historical and genealogical tool and adds layers of
understanding to the granite monument by honoring and helping us to remember
the sacrifices of the men who should never be forgotten.*

*Projects Commendation
The winner of the Projects Commendation is the Welcome Center featuring the
Stillaguamish Valley Watershed 1910, Stillaguamish Valley Pioneer
Association <http://www.stillymuseum.org/> and the Stillaguamish Valley
Genealogical Society <http://www.stillygen.org/>.

>From The Malstrom Award Judging Committee ---  *The project is an outdoor
exhibit that showcases the Stillaguamish River Valley Watershed.  It
consists of a hand-carved, hand painted, multidimensional map and includes a
carved log open building specifically built to house the glass covered map,
making it continually accessible to the public.  The multidimensional map
depicts cultural and natural features as they existed at the time of the
1910 census, spanning from the Puget Sound to the Cascade Mountains, and
aids in the interpretation of regional history, honoring both Native
Americans and the migrating early pioneers.  This stands as a commendable
project by a local heritage, grass-roots organization, and a project for
other heritage organizations to aspire to.*
