Nevada Humanities Awards

Every other year, Nevada Humanities presents four awards recognizing individuals and organizations that foster cultural enrichment and deepen our understanding of the human experience by facilitating opportunities for Nevadans to engage with the humanities. In addition to the Judith Winzeler Award for Excellence in the Humanities, Nevada Humanities adjudicates awards to honor outstanding humanities advocacy, teaching, and public programming.
