The Museum of Natural and Cultural History will accept nominations for the fourth annual Oregon Stewardship Award during January 2021, and we invite your organization to self-nominate or submit a nomination on behalf of an allied project.
Spearheaded by the Museum Advisory Council, the Oregon Stewardship Award recognizes an environmental or cultural heritage project that involves the community and aligns with the museum's mission to inspire stewardship of our past, present, and future. The $1000 award includes recognition of the project and its organizer(s) in the Oregon Heroes section of the museum’s Explore Oregon exhibit.
Online nomination forms are available on the museum’s website.
Oregon individuals, community groups, nonprofit organizations, K-12 schools, and higher education institutions are all eligible nominees, as are national and regional organizations with offices or affiliates in Oregon. Eligible projects are Oregon-based and relate directly to Oregon’s environment or cultural heritage. To be considered, projects must have meaningful community impact and be ongoing or completed during the 2020 calendar year.
