Sister Alfreda Award Ceremony

April 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Given annually by the Idaho Humanities Council and the Idaho State Historical Society, the Sister Alfreda Elsensohn Award recognizes outstanding service by an Idaho museum, historical society, or interpretive organization. The award is named for Sister Alfreda Elsensohn, one of Idaho’s outstanding historians who sought to collect, preserve, and interpret artifacts to better educate the public. “A museum is a bridge which links the present with the past,” she often said. The honor carries a financial award to be used by the recipient to continue its work in educational programming, developing and creation of exhibitions, preservation efforts, and/or preserving local and regional history.

Join us in celebrating this achievement at the Museum of Idaho on April 26 at 2 pm.
