2018 Alberta Historical Resources Foundation Heritage Awards

Alberta Historical Resources Foundation 2018 Heritage Award Recipients.

Held every two years, the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation Heritage Awards are presented to recognize groups and individuals’ efforts to research, promote or preserve Alberta’s diverse history and heritage.

Last night, 16 different winners received Heritage Awards at a ceremony held at the famed Government House in Edmonton.

This year’s Heritage Awards made a bit of history itself: the first-ever Youth Heritage and Indigenous Heritage awards were handed out, and the new logo for the Alberta Historical Resources Foundation was unveiled.
