History Channel Awards
|Category: Arts & Culture
The Channel’s “Save Our History” grants program awards grants of up to $10,000 to organizations that partner with schools or youth groups on community preservation projects. Projects should engage youth in learning about, documenting, and preserving the history of their communities. They should also inspire students to become tomorrow’s preservationists. Museums, historic sites, historical societies, preservation organizations, libraries, parks and recreation commissions, historic commissions, departments of local history, and archives are invited to partner with a local school or youth group and apply for funding. Projects can emphasize the history and/or efforts to preserve a neighborhood, building, cemetery, historic site, historic collections, or an historic event or tradition important to the local community. The project could include primary research, physical preservation or clean-up efforts, historical documentation, archaeological or architectural studies, oral histories, exhibits, or efforts to register or advocate for a site for national, state, or local historic landmark status. Additional information including an online application is available on the Web site.
