MHS Centennial Organization Awards 2009

At a ceremony on 19 April 2009 at the Dalnavert Visitors’ Centre (61 Carlton Street, Winnipeg), Centennial Organizations Awards will be presented to:

Manitoba Centennial Organization Awards were initiated in 2004 to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the Manitoba Historical Society. They acknowledge non-profit and not-for-profit groups that have operated continuously in Manitoba for 100 years or more. This program complements our existing programs recognizing longevity in farms and businesses.

Application forms are available from the Society’s web site ( and from our office. Applicants must provide evidence of their organization’s founding year, by way of primary documentation similar to that required for Centennial Business awards. Recipients need not have existed in the same physical location throughout their duration or retain their original name and mandate, so long as they still serve their members in a non-commercial capacity. Examples of acceptable documentation are varied depending on the specific applicant, and may include dated business records, minutes of meetings, ledgers, newspaper articles and advertisements, dated photographs, or other materials. MHS members can assist applicants in collecting the necessary documentation, wherever possible.

Centennial Organization Award recipients receive:

    1. framed certificate
    2. international recognition of their contributions and longevity in our Society publications and web site
    3. one-year MHS membership
    4. right to ongoing use of the Centennial Organization crest

Members who are aware of potential applicants are encouraged to draw their attention to this new program, for which there is no application fee.
