Awards

Each year, ANSM presents 2 awards for Excellence in Museum Practices. One to an individual and one to an organization, who have gone above and beyond in making a significant contribution to the museum field. Recipients of these awards have made remarkable efforts to increase knowledge about Nova Scotia’s natural history and heritage through exemplary museum practices. Nominating someone from your museum or an institution is a great way to acknowledge efforts to enrich our museum community.

The deadline to submit nominations for awards for the 2020-2021 cycle is July 5, 2021.
