2017 John Wesley Powell Prize

The Society for History in the Federal Government invites nominations for the 2017 John Wesley Powell Prize, deadline November 30, 2016. The Powell Prize commemorates the explorer and federal administrator whose work demonstrated early recognition of the importance of historic preservation and historical display.

The John Wesley Powell Prize alternates annually in recognizing excellence in the fields of historic preservation and historical displays. In 2017, the prize will be awarded to either an individual or to principal collaborators for a single major historic display or exhibit project completed in 2015 or 2016. The award for historic display is given for any form of interpretive historical presentation including, but not limited to, museum exhibits, historical films, CD/DVDs, websites, or multi-media displays. The winner will be announced in the spring of 2017 at the annual meeting of the SHFG. Eligible entrants include any agency or unit of the federal government or non-governmental organizations, including federal contractors, conducting eligible activities on behalf of a unit of the federal government.
