The Daniel B. Niederlander Award was established in 1975, in honor of Niederlander (1895-1964), a former History Museum president, businessman, and dedicated civic leader. The award is presented to a local education, cultural or heritage organization for outstanding programming.

· Services should be directed at the entire population of the town, village, or other geographical area described in its charter.

· Particular value will be placed on service rendered to youth.
