Submit Your Nomination for the 2019 Celebration of the Humanities Awards

Through this form, you can submit a nomination for one of the following three awards:

TOM ROBERTS PRIZE FOR CREATIVE ACHIEVEMENT IN THE HUMANITIES
Recognizes an individual or organization whose work blends the wisdom and methods of the humanities in inventive, original, and imaginative ways with topics, disciplines, and formats not ordinarily associated with traditional humanities education.

INNOVATION IN THE HUMANITIES AWARD
Recognizes the innovative implementation of the humanities within an organization to achieve a specific goal or a collaboration between organizations to achieve a shared vision.

PUBLIC HUMANITIES SCHOLAR AWARD
Recognizes outstanding public humanities work in teaching and scholarship that advances the civic and cultural life of Rhode Island.


Awards will be presented at the Council's Celebration of the Humanities event on October 17, 2019 at the Renaissance Hotel in Providence, RI.

The 2019 Celebration theme is IMAGINE. Our world is full of challenges and adversity. But what if we imagine a future that we actually want? Imagine connections between people, culture, and communities. Imagine kindness and empathy. Imagine shared stories and common values that respect difference. Imagine change. The humanities inspire our imagination to chart a positive future.

Nominate the Rhode Island cultural leaders who imagine the ways that the humanities can be used to inspire us all!
