Nominate an Outstanding Veteran for the 2016 Veterans’ Voices Award

2015 Veterans’ Voices On the Rise Awardees at 9/11 Award Ceremony

Do you know an exceptional Minnesota Veteran? If so, you should consider nominating him or her for the Minnesota Humanities Center’s 2016 Veterans’ Voices Award.

Now in its fourth year, the Veterans' Voices Award recognizes, amplifies, and honors Minnesotans who have honorably served and are making significant contributions to their communities. These actively engaged, former and current military service members go above and beyond to make positive contributions that improve the lives of people across Minnesota.

To nominate a Veteran for this award, please fill out the online nomination form by Friday, June 3, 2016.

If you are interested in nominating a Veteran but are not quite sure of the process, the Humanities Center is here to help. Two information sessions will be held for interested nominators to share tips on applying:
  • An in-person information session on Friday, April 15, 2016; and
  • An online webinar on Tuesday, April 19, 2016.
All nominations must be received by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, June 3, 2016. Nominees selected to receive an award will be notified by July 8, 2016. All awardees must be able to attend the September 11, 2016 dinner and award ceremony in St. Paul.

Exclusions: Please note that Humanities Center staff, board members, fellows, and consultants are neither eligible to nominate an individual for nor receive a 2016 Veterans' Voices Award.
