The 61st Annual Utah State History Conference will be held September 6, 2013, at the historic Rio Grande Depot, and on September 7, 2013, at a day of sessions sponsored by Fort Douglas Military Museum.
A complete conference schedule will be posted in May.
Utah State History's annual awards recognize individuals and groups who have made a significant contribution to history, prehistory or historic preservation in the state of Utah. Whether these efforts on behalf of the past are quiet or prominent, they benefit the state's citizens in tangible and intangible ways. Utah State History therefore invites nominations of persons or organizations who have given extraordinary service or completed outstanding projects.
Nominations are due by May 3, 2013. Awards will be presented at the 61st Annual Utah State History Conference, to be held September 5 – 8, 2013.
Utah State History sponsors the Papanikolas Award to encourage new scholarly research in the area of Utah women’s history at colleges and universities. The award is named for Helen Z. Papanikolas (1917-2004), a former member of the Utah State Board of History who was most noted for her research and writing on Utah and ethnic history, but also wrote fiction, as well as women’s history.
The winner receives a monetary award as well as being honored at Utah State
History’s annual meeting held September 5-8, 2013 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
