The Oakley Certificate of Merit is presented periodically by the AGS Board of Trustees to individuals and groups that have helped to advance the mission of the Association. The award consists of a certificate, presented by the Board of Trustees, as well as the gift of a book to the honoree's local library, in his or her name on behalf of AGS. Whenever possible the award presentation will be made by a local AGS member. Each year's recipients will have their names printed in the conference program book and annual report. In addition they will be acknowledged at the Awards Reception at the annual conference.
Please send your nominations, including the name, address, telephone, and e-mail address of the nominee and of the person or group doing the nominating. Describe the reasons for making the nomination, how the work reflects the AGS mission statement, and how the work has benefited the wider community. Include any clippings or photographs. If possible, have the local Historical Society or Preservation Commission comment upon the significance of the achievement.
Deadline has passed. Check back this Fall for the 2015 nomination application.
