The Northern Marianas Humanities Council is soliciting nominations for the 2017 Governor’s Humanities Awards.
This event, held annually in October as a part of CNMI Humanities Month, recognizes outstanding contributions to the humanities by individuals and organizations in the community.
Nominees should have a notable humanities achievement in the past year, as demonstrated in any of the following four categories:

A fifth category, Lifetime Achievement, recognizes significant contributions to the humanities over multiple decades. This award may be given posthumously.
Nomination form and instructions may be picked up at the council’s office in the Springs Plaza Building, Gualo Rai or can be downloaded as the council’s website.
Nominations are due no later than 4:30pm on Friday, Oct. 13.
Awards will be presented during the Governor’s Humanities Awards in late October at a time, date, and venue TBA.
