The deadline for entering 2 categories of this year’s Lincolnshire Heritage Awards has been extended until Tuesday May 8th.
These are Best Project with Children & Young People and Collections Care & Development.
Award for the Care and Development of Collections
This award celebrates behind the scenes work with collections. Entries could include conservation, preventative care, documentation, storage and more. Judges will be particularly interested in entries that have extended access to collections and how the skills and knowledge of staff / volunteers have developed as a result of the work.
Award for work with Children and Young People
This award will recognise a museum that has worked effectively to engage with and involve children and young people. Judges will be looking for projects that have involved children and young people in the decision-making process as well as special projects designed to increase involvement and engagement with the museum. Applications should also demonstrate the project benefits to both the museum and the young people involved.
The Lincolnshire Heritage Awards will celebrate all the wonderful work taking place in museums, historic houses and heritage sites across the county and will reward best practice.
If you can think of a Museum or Historic House in your area that has completed a project within these catergories within 2011/2012 then please let us/ them know to apply!
