The Buffalo History Museum is seeking nominations for their Red Jacket, Owen B. Augspurger, and Daniel B. Niederlander Awards. These honors are presented annually at The Buffalo History Museum’s Red Jacket Awards Ceremony in the fall.
Established in 1957, the Red Jacket Award is presented to individuals “in recognition of quiet, continued, unbroken devotion to our civic progress and needs, and by one who enlarged our awareness of our heritage in order that it may be built upon for the enrichment of our future.”
Established in 1974 in honor of Owen B. Augspurger, a former President of the Museum and Red Jacket Honoree (1969), this award is presented to individuals for outstanding service to the cause of local history.
The Niederlander Award was established in 1975 in honor of Daniel Niederlander, a former President of the Museum, businessman, and dedicated civic leader. The award is presented to a local educational, heritage or cultural organization for outstanding programming.
Nominations are reviewed by a volunteer Awards Selection Committee comprised of community leaders, museum board members, and staff. The Awards Selection Committee selects final candidates for each award, who are then presented to The Museum’s Board of Managers for voting.
Nominations must be submitted online and are due by Friday, March 5th. For more information, contact Kim Luangpakdy, Director of Advancement, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
