New York Cultural Heritage Tourism Network

First Annual Recognition Luncheon - Thursday, November 8th

Location: Oneida Community Mansion House
Thursday, November 8

Please join us on Thursday, November 8th as the Network begins a new tradition and celebrates those who have been leaders in shining a light on past traditions and growing cultural heritage tourism!
For its first Recognition Luncheon, the New York State Cultural Heritage Tourism Network would like to honor projects that celebrated New York State’s Suffrage Centennial. Projects can be nominated in one of five categories

  • Publication (a book or exhibit catalog)
  • Educational and Public Program
  • Exhibition
  • Multimedia (DVD, website, or other product)
  • Special Project (All aspects of a larger project will be reviewed. For example, an exhibition with related educational and public programs and a publication.)
Projects must have been completed in 2017 by a cultural heritage site for the New York State Suffrage Centennial. Nominees do not have to be members of the New York Cultural Heritage Tourism Network. Self-nominations are encouraged. For projects with cross-institutional partnerships, one organization must be designated the lead organization who will nominate the project. Entries will be judged in two budget levels - operating under $250,000 and operating $250,000 and over.

Honorees will be acknowledged on Thursday, November 8, as part of our First Annual Recognition Luncheon at the Oneida Community Mansion.
