Call for nominations for Auckland Museum Medals 2018
Auckland Museum values scholarship, academic achievement, research and service to the community. This often ‘behind-the-scenes’ aspect of the Museum plays a crucial role in enriching and providing alternative ways of looking at collections, generating new knowledge and enhancing the experience for our increasingly diverse audiences.
That is why, each year the Trust Board recognises individuals who have given exceptional service to the Museum or added value to its interests. This includes outstanding contributions to the generation of new knowledge drawing on the Museum’s collections and research resources. The Museum’s Trust Board is inviting nominations for the Museum Medals from now until Friday 28 September 2018.
The awards and their criteria are as follows:
Auckland Museum Medals for 2017 went to:
J A Grant-Mackie - Associate Emeritus of Auckland War Memorial Museum
Dante Bonica - Companion of Auckland War Memorial Museum
Stuart Park - Fellow of Auckland War Memorial Museum
Ngahuia Te Awekotuku - Fellow of Auckland War Memorial Museum
The 2018 Museum Medals will be awarded at a special ceremony in February 2019.
* The recipient must not be a permanent employee of the Museum, or a member of the Trust Board or its committees, at the date of nomination.
