Nominations were sent in by cultural organizations from across the state.

The board will give out 46 awards to individuals and organizations dedicated to preserving and sharing their region’s history. Each recipient will receive a commemorative pin and certificate presented to them by a member of the History Nebraska Board of Trustees.
