Humanities Montana seeks nominations for the 2019 Governor’s Humanities Awards, to be conferred at a ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda on Feb. 7, 2019.

The organization especially welcomes nominations of individuals age 40 years and younger, in order to recognize and honor great promise, innovation or achievement in the humanities.

Nominations should be no more than 1,000 words and should address the nominee’s contributions to the humanities in Montana. The humanities include the study of literature, history, Native American history and cultures, philosophy, languages, religious studies and other disciplines. Nominations for individuals and organizations will be considered.

There are no formal award categories. Nominees are evaluated for achievement in humanities scholarship and programs, efforts to bring new audiences to the humanities, support for humanistic programs through volunteering and donations, and more.

Members of the Humanities Montana board and staff are not eligible for consideration, nor are deceased individuals. The deadline for nominations is April 27.

Nominations should be emailed to or mailed to Governor’s Humanities Awards, Humanities Montana, 311 Brantly Hall, Missoula, MT 59812.
